closer to home as one of the sunniest places in germany. but especially now in the summer too much sun can be dangerous here on issues and on beach goers have found ingenious ways of keeping out of the sun. the result a colorful scene made up of umbrellas and tents. the more traditional option is the wicker chair invented on the baltic sea coast in $882.00 it's now an essential beach item around these parts getting in on the fun is super easy you grab a key at one of the many rental spots along the beach and find your chair then you set it up and relax. the wicker beach chair is tightly interwoven with beach culture at the baltic and the north sea and rarely found outside of. many of them is an island of

connection between the popular resorts of hitting stuff and back and stretches out all the way. in poland blows it up as part german part polish the island is famous for its peers is actually home to germany's oldest it was built in 1082. after about a quarter of the way you come upon a restaurant in the winter and this is a great place to hide from the cold winds but down in the summer it's a lot nicer out. from here it's a pleasant walk to the end of the pier. during high seas an excursion boat dock here several times a day. carrying stuff back and they are nicknamed the emperors resorts why well because already 200 years ago the rich and the famous like to spend their vacation here one of the. was german emperor well yeah great time of walking past
9:06 am
but still very much alive you only have to look. stroll around the imperial seaside resorts known as the kinds of data and soak up the atmosphere you get a sense of what it was like here in the 19th century back when cuz the village had the 1st came to the dome to relax as well as to see and be seen. almost to curt's artists and wealthy merchants from the capital followed his lead and spend their free time here and use that on has remained a favorite vacation destination to this day. the un and is even nicknamed gooden's ball of top. because it was it almost located just 200 kilometers from the german capital. columns balustrades and balconies adorn the islands that as many of which date from

the turn of the 20th century. this style is a relic of a bygone era but it's one that continues to captivate visitors to this day. even back then it was a status symbol to own a house at one of saddam's glamorous seaside resorts. during the communist era the videos fell into disrepair but they've now been restored with many being turned into hotels or apartments. the tourists don't just flock to the 3 year old seaside resorts where the architecture these spawn towns have a charm all their. war as german off from town i once wrote the view of the grey you see through the trees is poetic and infinitely pleasing to the heart and so. today it's hard to find that poet. tranquility of the bustling kinds of it oh but the entire thing of the sphere
9:08 am
remains. about $1000000.00 visitors come to the island every year especially in some a during the high season. that rented a bike and rode down the boardwalk. only a couple of minutes later every chipotle and. this sculpture is meant to remind border crossers of the fact that it wasn't always this easy to get to the neighboring country. these times are long gone today and can be easier to get to so we don't wish you.
9:09 am
seem like i'm not feeling the one to notice here into huge crowds everywhere. you know we see it is popular with shoppers prices being much lower than on the other side of the border but that's not the only thing that makes a visit to saddam's biggest city worthwhile we know is nicknamed the 4th everest resort and has many beautiful spots. back on the german side ride by the border and stop to visit the island sand sculpture exhibit. general manager much kluger leads me past 100 sculptures get the work of 25 artists from all around the world. how does and become art yes how does sound become art we have these big. crates
9:10 am
which are prepared they're filled with sand and water then the mixture is compressed and the next last added on top and the next when it solidified the artist can start working on it from the top work from the top right down to the bottom of the hole we are going about if there isn't only sand don't you spray it with anything to make it stick together so that some of the headlines know it really is just sand and that's why there's a roof over our heads to protect the sound from the elements it's simply compressed and the artists many many years of experience in dealing with this material wouldn't actually that's the secret of the sort of you know i was. but not the only one the artists also use a special kind of sand. shows me how that works one to stand back as you know you have to try to hear we have our baltic sea sound like you'd find on the beach it's very fine and even if you squeeze it together not much happens. when that happens
9:11 am
there's our sand sculpture sand. take it pretty sure and for the press it together quite firmly with some coke and you have a really nice group. the sand they use here comes from a gravel quarry in a village on. the sand hasn't been worn smooth by the sea so and packed together better. than sculptures don't last forever so each year in there is a new exhibition with a different motto this year's is expedition earth. but i'm going to if i wanted to build something like this although of course much smaller on the beach how would you recommend i go about it. with my 1st tip would be to get the right kind of sand although i think that's a bit difficult otherwise i advise you to work from a. don't go up too high but well from above and then you can create
9:12 am
a lovely object or. try to. time out to meet a local our viewer manuel costello wants to take us around his home town granada in spain back in the middle ages it was ruled by the morris nazareth dynasty and they turned the city into the center of andalusia an arabic culture that legacy can still be felt today. hello and welcome to grenada one of the most beautiful cities in spain my name is manuel and today i will show you why i mean up with this city. out of town now where the new with and also known as the americas suffer not it
9:13 am
this name comes from its resemblance to typical streets in iraq over here we can find different products from the airport after a little thought there were a lot of it. and if you want to take a break you can have a seat and relax in one of the many cafes to enjoy a moroccan tea. pot and i'm going this is how they seem to form a more supporter of the city and one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in 1904 it was declared a world heritage site by unesco so i love it i love getting lost to the streets in a towering deputy.
9:14 am
i mean right now we're at the meat i do with the new cologne which is one of the most important and beautiful if you points from granada that from here we have a view of the sierra nevada mountains and yell ombre which is the symbol of this city. they will. get that one point though it's made up of the now 3 palaces by the more recent months and more to lived as well as the elica saba the walls that surrounded the ancient city and the gardens of the hen early the royals recreational and holiday residents feel that make it a lot about the end of the one and a piece of advice if you want to visit. be sure to reserve tickets and as they are usually sent out a month in advance. i mean this is one of the most beautiful walks to take and her daughter officially it's called said robin or that to say the last piece this woke up
9:15 am
a sad one since the road led to the cemetery. this is the reality hall the jewish quarter of grenada and among other things this popular front street by world famous for feet the artist. on the. one of the most famous place to listen to farming community kanada is the sacramento caves but today i want to take you to one of my favorite bands let's go . there you're. going to. eat. there.

i hope you enjoy touring my city and i hope to see you soon i'm going to. come down to the. is a long island the beach stretches out over 42 kilometers. in the hinterland to find forests meadows and lakes the island is separated from the mainland by the october informed by the river pino flowing into the baltic sea . all the places i've seen so far were full of tourists now i want to discover all saddam's more quiet parts so i'm off to the hinterlands and i'm treating myself to a truly special experience i'll discover in the area on horseback on goes the don there are many riding stables i've chosen this one in odds on the team
9:17 am
a group of locals had planned a tour and they've invited me to join. this is adriano my best buddy for today or at least i hope so before hitting the road we need to curry the horses. saddled them. and put their bids and. almost ready but safety 1st. oh gosh it's a long 123 i. made it to this. first we need to cross town i've been in the saddle a couple of times already so i was able to join the tour right away but if you've never sat on a horse you'll have to do a couple of practice rounds at the stables or let someone else take the reins. in
9:18 am
any case this is a great way to discover nature. here in the hinterland there aren't nearly as many tourists as there were at the beach and in the resorts nature and beautiful scenery as far as the eye can see. before i get too romantic we decided to speed it up a little and attract it as far as i'll go this time around the bend in the. on the to the leave the gallop to the pros but i do have to say this area is the perfect spot to go horseback riding. we could even take a quick dip with the animals. in the in. the.
9:19 am
now if you're interested in military history you should take a trip to the other side of the island to peenemunde during national socialism it was the site of an army research center specialized undeveloped in new weapons the historic technical museum reappraise is this history. archivist told must clearly shows me around the premises. now we come into the rocket which made famous the one most people associate with this black and white rocket known as the v. 2 or retribution weapon to aggregate fear as it was called here. yet how destructive was it. you don't just wipe out a single building it leveled half the neighborhood specially when buildings were
9:20 am
hit directly the impact was already to have to start in 45 it wasn't as precise as originally planned so it was only used to bomb bombed want to area target selection area targets meant big cities. the v 2 was launched about 3200 times targeting mostly london and who are more than 8000 people died as a result of the attacks. to take an elevator to the roof of the museum in order to get an idea of the extent of the area occupied by the former military training center. to this day a big part of saddam's northern tip is a strictly guarded exclusion zone to protect people from left over ammunition buried in the ground. between 1943 and 44 the majority of the center was destroyed in allied airstrikes what was left was the army research center's power plant in 1901 the museum of denver it describes the history of the center its technologic
9:21 am
milestones as well as the horrific and inhumane sacrifices made in the name of scientific advancement. the months are prime time peenemunde it was europe's largest military research for silly. 14312000 people worked here they had different professions only a few were engineers there were heaps of administrators a huge bureaucratic machine went along with it and many others who weren't here by choice. that's forced laborers p.o.w.'s and prisoners and concentration camps many of them lost their lives working on the weapon serial production the museum also conveys the idea that the v. 2 should not only be seen as a destructive weapon that killed thousands its launch was also a watershed moment for the evolution of modern space technology because it was the 1st manmade object to reach space wasn't a. $942.00 was an historic day of october the 3rd is now reunification day in germany but this was in $142.00 the
9:22 am
rocket took off and reached a peak at altitude of 84.5 kilometers. back then the 50 mile marker senses the boundary of space that's roughly 80 kilometers so the gateway to space was really pushed open here. on which side of history would you place the v. 2. isn't this really that's really a tough question it's a balancing act we try to perform here in the museum too it was the mother of all rockets but here it was primarily about weapons development off shore they motivated the engineers by saying to we've won the war with it will go to the moon but they could only say that behind closed doors to. begin the you know how do you go about it here in the museum with this heritage that very much needs to be put into context for the visitors. are you can with me we can do right by everyone your technicians are often disappointed that we don't explain how all the plants
9:23 am
function than say just a concentration camp memorial on the other hand others accuse us of glorifying nazi engineers and their technology. to please everybody but we try to find the middle ground if we are attacked from both sides then we know we found the middle ground and we hope to continue doing that in the future in the new permanent exhibition we're planning. to. pain in the end it is a place in history that offers a stark contrast to the beach holiday now it's your turn again it's time for our weekly the mail as always we'll show you travel impressions of one of our viewers this week we got mail from new york who visited mexico into.

my stay here and it was a dom is almost over but there's still one thing on my to do list. to face up to the late 19th century fishing was the islanders livelihood i mean kozel where fish was made more durable by coding at what solves food conservation kept the island's mostly poor population from starving in winter to date the historic salt cuts are under a preservation order. and $991.00 the family restaurant cause it was a bad situation to. stores but here at the fish. and smoked that's typical for a who's a doctor and masters smokers is going to show me how it's done. you
9:26 am
go to how do you prepare the fish for smoking does it have to be salted or otherwise spice to move them over 1st we couldn't. get to try it just like we have here. how long do you leave it hanging. for now it's just a drive when smoking fish less is more smoking the next time you. well we're going to play them because. they know which types of fish are particularly good when smoked but here we have even salmon. and below that's part of the that's one of us are here. once the fish is dry in the oven is closed for about an hour. in case you were wondering why they call it smoking.
9:27 am
time to get a taste i'm going to try them all equal salmon and taliban. i wonder if these are the ones i smell but at this point characters the most important thing is they're all delicious. but filling life at the beach and tranquility in the back country good food and plenty to do it on offer is all being greedy and see a need for a perfect summer holiday i for one had a great time i hope you get to see you next time somewhere and germany.
