01 Deutsch-Deutscher trains Germany closer together - also on the rail. Leipzig is the destination of the first Intercity-Zuges, between two parts of Germany, which was launched in Frankfurt. Thus, there is a fast and direct connection between both exhibition centers again.
The travel between the two parts of Germany has increased since the fall of the wall. The West German federal railways with a variety of new trains meet these new requirements. By eliminating the passport requirement for U.S. citizens the trains in the other part of Germany can be produced much faster. The modern Intercity crossing that border, which will soon be history.
The Leipzig train station was once a European transport hub, which had lost significance through the Division of the continent. He is now tied the Bundesbahn by the regular express train named Johann Sebastian Bach as the first destination in the GDR, the Intercity network. The world famous Thomanerchor, which once stood for Johann Sebastian Bach as Cantor, welcomed the Intercity with a Motet of the great composer.
So it looked for more than 40 years on the roads along the inner-German border: cancelled stillgetegte tracks, the bridges between East and West.
Since November 1989 was working with high pressure in the restoration of old transport links, such as here on the line of Kassel - Hall. Was the site of the former area of forest growth free, new Rails and sleepers had to be relocated. In time for the entry into force of the summer timetable of the federal railway operation could be resumed. Thousands cheered as a historical steam locomotive of the type of that ran here last 45 years ago, the line was officially opened. This summer, twice as many trains cross the inner German border as last year - a major step in the direction of a Transport Union of the two parts of Germany, where people can freely again meet.
02. process of German unification a historic moment in Bonn. The Finance Ministers of the Federal Republic of Germany and the German Democratic Republic, Waigel and Romberg, signed the Treaty between the two German States, which is to establish a monetary Union in the presence of their leaders. This is the clear political will of the citizens, said Prime Minister de Maizière: "the spirit in which this agreement came about, corresponds to the aims and wishes of the people in the GDR for freedom, prosperity and social justice. Here not foreign States have negotiated with each other, but fellow countrymen and friends who alienate themselves no longer want to be."
German Chancellor Helmut Kohl spoke of a new historical section, which you can now begin: "what we are witnessing is the birth of free and some Germany. "Before the eyes of the world do we express as the chosen, freely elected representatives of the Governments of the two parts of Germany our will as a people and as a nation together our future in a free heltlichen, in a democratic State."
Previously, Chancellor Kohl was met with the Prime Ministers of the Federal States. Together with the Federal Government, the heads of State want to call a special fund of "German unity" in the life, in which public funds worth billions of dollars for the reconstruction of the East German economy provided. The Treaty without the participation of the Federal States also participating in the financial burden, can occur due to the federal structure of the Federal Republic. The earliest implementation of monetary, economic and social Union is the stated goal of the two German Governments. Finance Minister Romberg said at the introduction of the Treaty in the people's Chamber: "the situation was characterised by the increasing decline in an economic system. The Treaty had to be completed within under these conditions of specific months."
Romberg called the Treaty an important step on the way to the political agreement of the Germans. Before on July 2, the mark of the Federal Republic can be introduced as a means of payment in the GDR, the Treaty must yet by the East German Parliament as well as by the legislative bodies in Bonn are adopted and ratified. Then begins an economic Union will be at the end as Finance Minister Waigel said before the Bundestag, Germany's political unification: "economic, monetary and social Union is the ultimate irreversible step on the way to the State unit of in Germany. We face today for the first time in the history of our country the chance to complete unity in freedom. The now tangibly close day of Germany's unification is for future generations. the start of a new section in German history"
03. VITRA DESIGN MUSEUM emerging spirals, winding lines and bulging contours: This unusual museum building by American architect Frank O. Gehry, who is regarded as the profiliertester representative of Deconstructivism was founded in Weil am Rhein.
The furniture design museum houses an important collection of twelve hundred chairs, which documents the history of this seat since 1850. Anyone who thinks that the shape of the Chair, this age-old use item, either through its function once and for all times given here a better educate themselves can.
Since the last century, chairs are produced industrially. So that there is no unit goods of mass production, artists have always again imaginatively varies the theme Chair. Long ago, the groundbreaking designs of the Bauhaus architect Le Corbusier or the Dutchman have become classics of the modern Gerrit Rietveld.
New materials have repeatedly stimulated the boundless imagination of the designer - seating comfort seem somewhat questionable for the uninitiated: the extravagant shapes evoke the sense of beauty in everyday life all times.
The Museum wants to create a forum that equally makes transparent the history of modern industrial design architects and laymen. A Museum of everyday life and at the same time of the avant-garde - unusually by his subject through his architecture. 04 VW POLO production in East Germany as the East Germans in the past could finally travel to the West November, he suddenly became the car of the year: the Trabant, Trabant referred to, the most driven small cars of the GDR.
But the car, typical product of socialist planned economy, had not kept pace with the technological development of in recent years. In its present form is a look under the hood of the Trabbi reminiscent of the 50s.
The two-stroke engine also produced emissions that exceed modern environmental regulations.
For the automobile plants in Zwickau, where the satellite is hergestelit, there has been little chance in international competition. But now there is new hope through the cooperation with the Volkswagen factory.
More recently, a technically improved Trabant is made. He receives the modern four-stroke engine from VW and has significantly improved sales prospects on the domestic and international markets. The production of the VW Polo is newly added. The first VW Poio rolled by the Zwickau assembly lines, by the end of the year it should be 50 Polos per day.
The Zuliefertelie are tentatively from the Federal Republic. In the course of the next few years will arise in Zwickau new production halls motor, in which and body be built.
If the transition to market-based production methods, tens of thousands of jobs can be through cooperation with VW the economic future of the automobile plants in Zwickau are secured - and thus.
