Our destinations include St. Peter-Ording, Hamburg, the Allgäu region and Eisenach.
St. Peter-Ording is Germany's largest seaside resort in terms of overnight stays. The extensive white sandy beach attracts many holidaymakers.
If you're visiting St. Peter-Ording, surfing instructor Sonja Behrendt recommends the dune known as Maleens Knoll, the old harbor in Tönning, and Café Éclair.
In the 1980s, Hafenstrasse in the St. Pauli district was known for run-ins between squatters and the police. Nowadays it's peaceful, but the desire for alternative cultural experiences has remained, in the Golden Pudel Club, for instance, and in Park Fiction, where you can sit in the shade of plastic palm trees and watch the ships in the port.
The Galetschbach near Rettenberg is a mountain stream right out of a picture book, wild and romantic. But it's also a rare habitat. On a nature trail, a ranger explains its special features, from the creatures that live in the stream's waters to the highly specialized plants on its banks.
We accompany Claudio Elicer and Ximena Krause from Santiago de Chile as they search for traces of their idol, Johann Sebastian Bach, who was born in Eisenach.
