UNESCO-Welterbe: Die Verbotene Stadt in China

Egon Pfaff from Chile visited his mother in China - and in Beijing captured on video his impressions of the Forbidden City with its Imperial Palace. This was the official residence of Chinese Emperors from 1420 until 1911. The Forbidden City, a World Heritage Site since 1987, is one of Beijing's main tourist attractions.
