behind the scenes numerous employees keep it up and running the old siani homes residents need about ten tons of food a year fish kristie asian squid and dry food. and i live with this summer feisty and others more hesitant so we have to make sure they all get their fair share. this oceanographic museum focuses on marine life in the north and baltic sea. among the visitors are both tourists and locals. children can come here for classes outside the normal school curriculum that's great for us instructors and they can study biology in the o.t. our nails are new. and by informing people about the world's oceans the museum also aims to help protect them.
this building was an abbey and tell the sixteenth century later it was mostly used as an arsenal armoring and school in the one nine hundred fifty s. st catherine's monastery was turned into a museum. the most remarkable of its countless exhibits is this viking treasure that was discovered after a storm washed up on the neighboring island of hayden saying. that this is like one treasure doing in shazam and that's when he. says they didn't see treasure came to because back in eight hundred seventy three a woman went to a goldsmith here and. wanted to know what one of the pieces was worth as it looked a bit like gold. and the goldsmith fetched who was the museum's first ever director that would have. that support because he immediately knew it had been made by vikings or more and more pieces mysteriously came to light so the museum director
went to hidden say bargained with the fisherman and managed to acquire sixteen of these amazing pieces of jewelry or and for this museum soft sifton tied it is toying smokes yeah. do you know what everything is someone i can tell that's a necklace but with the rest you'll have to help me. when. i never see recognized is the only piece that's really solid gold. doesn't. it consists of several gold rods twisted together and we had the most beautiful object in the entire ensemble. a kind of a brooch used as a class for an outer garment that might have. the backing from franconian court attire this round fibula was used in their clothing. and that's what i've been the scandinavians originally had two oval fibula or
didn't. then we have these pendants they have proper loops so you can hang them on a chain as if you have none of the can mcguffin and you'll be sure this treasure is in one piece or could there still be some gold buried in the sand and hidden in the . board with a stick to the devil for the money that you still hoped we might find another piece if you look at the pendant you can see they're not all identical as this is in a different similar but they're so skillfully crafted that it's very into zine i think about the yen when they're mcguffin also if you assume they have been symmetrically arranged on a chain it's like two or more pieces are definitely missing buying after their life maybe someone from hidden say it's one of those pieces in a jewelry box and this is a tile or. is this kind of gold treasure usually under or is there something similar elsewhere in germany or europe. as is or i am such.
a treasure like the one we have here is unique the vikings tended to work in silver and so an ensemble of jewellery in the pure gold is incomparable but it's almost pure gold we've analyzed the materials if you look closely at the pieces you'll see it's the highest quality goldsmiths aren't you could expect from that time. to do that side of africa. check out some of our favorite travel pics on instagram. d w travel. before continuing my travels i need to replenish my energy reserves and for that i'm going to try a local specialty i know i have been told i have to try the bismark herring yes you must or maybe even sherry nachos. i don't think i'll go for the bismarck i've heard

overall and or the rushing roland as another of lukens attractions. a steam train has travelled the narrow gauge track since eight hundred ninety five at a pace more leisurely than its name implies. one of the places that i wasn't at all and takes is to god it's hunting lodge in the building in a tally in renaissance style dates from the nineteenth century and became a popular destination for the nobility and celebrities back then. mark is said to have climbed to one hundred fifty steps in a tower to enjoy the view from the. other seaside resorts going to has benefited from tourism since the early boom in
the late nineteenth century. former villages like bins developed into fashionable baltic sea spas with their magnificent villas near the beach. leaning white wooden decorations are typical of the architecture associated with seaside resorts. in eighteen seventy bins had a total of eighty vacationers nowadays you can add over half a million to that but in winter i can barely imagine what this must look like in summer. because as you can see in the low season things are just like back in the day no people no hustlin bustle just perfect if you're looking for some peace and quiet.

little while with the saying. ok we're getting there we're getting back to. the gold plated experience of. not taking these bets it was called blogging. today we're on day guard called song which is another really popular ski and snowboard spot right next to the horse center and i've heard the word pull down
that. i'm not about to let. you go i'm. going to miss my place to sleep to come to my next stop. the island of blues is now it's the island's gateway to the baltic sea from here i'm setting out to see the famous chalk cliffs from the water. but unfortunately today is not my day the sun can't get through the mist and clouds . but it's certainly striking the way they tower majestically out of the water.
you can stock lives form with our you will leave the islands most spectacular coastline but the chalk is also a natural raw material with many useful applications and you treatments for example . logan's chalk cliffs were created sixty eight million years ago in southern europe through the shifting of tectonic plates the chalk deposits were pushed to the north during glacial periods they were thrust to the surface the chalk is made from the remains of tiny marine organisms. and this is especially pure because no other sediments were dragged into this basin with it. and there are those for the last one hundred fifty meters or truck sediment sitting here on the surface. and some of them are up to one hundred sixty meters above sea level but in reality and
there's only one place in germany where they exist and that's here on the island of kruger does a sea of it's always. been even has a museum devoted to chalk it's been mined here for almost two hundred years chalk is used as fertilizer in paint and in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. to process the chalk it's soaked in water separated from undesired components and dried what used to take eight weeks now takes about eight minutes. for medicinal chalk only especially fine material is used after it's been additionally cleaned what remains as the museum informs visitors are mainly residues a planktonic form enough era these single celled animals had skeletons made of small calcite platelets when the organisms died they sank to the seabed and form the chalk sediment. physiotherapist york snyder from sasnett has been using her
guinn's medicine of chalk since the early one nine hundred ninety s. this natural product dissolved in water is said to stimulate the heart and circulation and have an anti inflammatory effect. on very few you know if it's used as a poultice on the back or joints warm or cold or if you're experiencing a rheumatic episode for instance it's applied cold which we were more about for chronic conditions it tends to be used warm or cool. and. the poultice is sealed to stop the chalk from drying out medicine or chalk was used on luke in as early as the turn of the twentieth century. the sediments from the cretaceous period are. also used to help cleanse and regenerate the skin as a face mask. this absolute by his skin is so soft off to its home and at first it tingles a bit but the skin regains its moisture quite quickly and then it feels so much
softer to put it to absolute pleasure. one thing that's never lacking on a holiday island leg luden is accommodations there are thousands of hotels apartments and vacation homes but if you're looking for something a little unusual head to not talk about where you can rent floating lodges and houses on stilts and you can try out a whole range of water activities tell ya she is the man behind the idea. of this is a truly unique place how did you come up with it and. we have just about everything on offer when it comes to water sports and that makes us unique and we can. you can learn sailing with us go swimming off the terrace of your house you can go fishing you can do everything related to water. from a launch in the floating houses where the first of their kind in germany and the
