for. today i'm off to the black forest in the southwest of germany. my tour starts in freiburg the region's biggest city it attracts some $3000000.00 visitors every year. the old town is free to kill early impressive. frederick's biggest landmark is the cathedral here the beauties and the detail take these cargos if you look closely here realize that each of them is unique. as you stroll through the city you'll see
11:03 pm
little channels called places that they can be found along many of freiburg streets during the winter months they're empty but in summer they're full of water. those have been around since the middle ages and they stretch out over more than 15 kilometers back in the day they were used to assure water supply but nowadays they've become more of a tourist attraction and a pretty dangerous one legend has it that whoever steps into them will have to marry a freiburg or so be careful. freiburg is germany's southernmost city and the perfect starting point for a trip to the black forest. during the winter months the region's biggest draw is of course the snow i have a huge winter sports fan and i'm going to do my very best to try everything the black forest has to offer the 2 classics skiing and sledding are on the very top of
11:04 pm
my list. and there is one thing i'm particularly looking forward to there's only so much i'll give away it's not going to be me who exercises i'm going to let a couple of furry friends do the work for me. also in today's program we'll show you some black words essential is from the cuckoo clock to the famous ball and who. one of our viewers shows us around his hometown valencia in spain. and as always we got mail this time from paris. the black forest is germany's highest low mountain range and bought in virgin bags number one tourist destination. from freiburg it takes you about half an hour to get to the black forest by car on the way you pass by some fascinating sites as you head for the so-called valley of hell.
11:05 pm
but in reality it's not hellish at all quite the opposite the value shows nature at its best. this gorge for example is so narrow that if the legend is to be believed a deer once jumped from one side to the other. my journey and leads me to the frozen lake easy one of the many must sees in the black forest. every year thousands of tourists full pir to like t.t.c. in both summer and winter to stroll among the probably knowledge.
11:06 pm
a few kilometers away. it is even more water like shanxi. you can walk the entire perimeter of the black forest biggest lake on an 18 kilometer trail. nestled in a valley you'll find santa claus in cathedral it's domus 36 meters in diameter. like many towns here santa claus in is surrounded by dense stock woods they look almost black hence the name black forest the abundance of wood is reflected in the local products the best known is the cuckoo clock. the run back on the house company and shawna has been making them for more than a 100 g. is. under 4 knots in started with
11:07 pm
this design issue the walk it's called a shield cloth it's hand painted and it's the original cuckoo clock try the vide of a body on our company has developed variations on market so now we also make contemporary coco pops. went and they all strike the hour. another regional tradition is a ladies' hat called the bottom hoot actually it's only more than 3 neighboring villages but it's become a symbol of the whole black forest. would these hats the inspiration for black forest gateau there's no proof but they could be because the chocolate shavings somehow look a bit like the dark woods and here it is a black fire scatter a sponge cake basically kirsch a cure whipped cream and cherries and chocolate shavings.
11:08 pm
the black forest isn't just a place to go sightseeing or enjoy a meal it's great for winter sports. that $1001500.00 made has its highest mountain in the felde but is almost guaranteed to have snow it's home to the region's biggest ski resorts. the black forest the biggest skiing ariad no way i'm missing that but 1st i need to fetch them dear no problem because there's a rental spot at the foot of the slopes. the there are 38 lifts around the field back and some 63 kilometers of peace.
11:09 pm
i'm going to start with a blue slope one of the easier ones i haven't read in a while the 1st. great weather perfect snow and a view all the way to the alps i couldn't ask for more. time to try something a little more challenging. but. that
11:10 pm
was amazing. and considering it's my 1st piece remember the year i don't think i did too bad but as he is way too old school for you and you like to try out more innovative ways of moving around the globe i've got a great tip for you why don't you try snowkiting. snowkiting on the failed back it involves a car turning your way over the ice or snow on a snowboard or skis you can even take to the air. but of course you have to learn to land and breakers well the fell back off is plenty of courses for beginners. those as they're the 1st thing i have to know when setting up my kite is where is the wind coming from what do you think where is it coming from what is on by and then
11:11 pm
both your ears have to feel the cold equally it's a bit hard with a helmet but still an out where your nose is pointing that's where the wind is coming from. what i know i can only tell friends who. practice without a snowboard and with a mini cart that's not so easy right now the wind is gusting getting stronger but already the 1st participant is having a go with a large car. with winds of 47 and above things start to get uncomfortable but weather often changes fast on the felt back the grew faster stronger as you go up the. revenue. the next day the skies are clear perfect conditions for snowkiting.
11:12 pm
and all good well we're not too bad the only tree far and wide is in the way some time snowkiting involves climbing. we have the most it's not the 1st time i've had to climb a tree. i read through it now you will know why we don't snow cockney obstacles . after that lesson sucked me everything goes beautifully but. yeah. everyone's really enjoyed it and they get plenty of praise for their efforts . on flights make stuff. so if you want a new experience no county is just the thing and there's no doubt you'll get better dremel than rush.
11:13 pm
hour break here in the black forest that's no problem there are lots of chalets restaurants and rustic and for instance the right marty holds a guest house run by the andrus family. and all come to. know of any cause like me because. it's located in beautiful surroundings near the fence about. hikers and cross country skiers often stop here it's one of the oldest inns in the black forest. these are new how long have you been running the guest house in my generation since 1905. and before that. another 5 generations. 825. the andrus families attachment to the region is reflected in
11:14 pm
their menu. i couldn't really recommend steaks from steaks and good. english they come from the cattle out there from a farm just 50 meters away. the 1st answer so you raise your own food here. bam out has to go back to work but before i leave i need to try some of his food the best way to try as much as i can seems to be a platter with regional delicacies. trying local fare is definitely one of my favorite parts about travelling our. couldn't agree more he invited us to the spanish city of lindsey at the birthplace of ada and we met up with him on the central market among regional fruit veggies and of course come on let's go meet a local. hello
11:15 pm
i'm carl this club and i love traveling the world but today i want to show you some of my favorite spots in my hometown of the lens here we start our tour in the heart of the city at the main market don't tell me to get into that i must. tell. because that is really tasty and a computer more. than just about out of i love this place at the center of the colors in the fresh fruit and vegetables and i like wandering around the market and i enjoy showing visitors around to see that he was.
11:16 pm
there that was there time now to head for the old silk exchange another famous landmark in the lancet and i guess that was done for him you know. what no m.p.'s we're very proud of this building it was declared a unesco world heritage site in 1996 on december the 7th my birthday if that wasn't what i mean i suspect this is the most impressive room he's on with it's elegant columnist ellis in a theatre they say that they say your. silk another products were traded here from the 15th century on months for no sale will be important. stuff. this is a. one
11:17 pm
other that i also like taking because it is around the old central and south but then i think this district with its narrow streets is called elk out of manhattan and used to be pretty rundown with the bath and then some 20 years ago restoration began and now a lot of young people live here even without their home and the people they cast as he was the old buildings have interesting features like cast on balconies that are decorated with tiles. that once topical for the region but i mean we put up your jacket. they help us out of us. to leave the past behind us and head for valencia's most modern landmark which will really surprise you. this is the city of arts and sciences and it's made up of a number of different buildings think loued the opera house and our science museum with you know there. is a lot of the. b.n.
11:18 pm

11:19 pm
you have i been waiting for this moment i know been as russia because so i don't come online. i get to go dog sledding with these adorable huskies my gal luna and the rest. just how bad from lenz kay says it is important that his visitors learn how to handle the dogs. yeah i'll do they have to be before they can be harnessed to a sled skip i need to huskies the husky decides that for him so that officially they can take part in basis after that 18 months old. doesn't wins and then he's about racing harnesses and there are different sizes. and you must not you have to put them on. the strongest dogs pull the slates on the ones that listen well the leaders on your ok on the harnesses are always the same for the front and the back . you know it's the only different size not marxist at the business i hear but
11:20 pm
starcom i think they'll both economically have. the or take it. on. when i have a harness and. the dogs can hardly wait. before we get to the sled we give them a drink now in winter the huskies are really busy but what's it like in summer. is almost under the basically they rest in summer they don't do anything anymore that's why we give them less to eat it's like when bears hibernate. you can walk them as usual but in temperatures above 20 degrees celsius when you don't do much with siberian huskies gone. that ok so let's get going. and where are those assistance attach the dogs to tug lines.
11:21 pm
to get used to it i go for a spin with sasha staring. it's hot but i wasn't trying to love still she has a huge it. doesn't mean the what happens when i lean into a curve do the dogs go along with mean by they don't know in front what i'm doing behind them cool though. neda's min no they don't but you took to the vicinity what are the commands how can i get them to do what i want. young ones we've trained them in german and in english too which is but it's also i guess we found that works best when open if you want to go ahead and use a lynx but in a very smooth if you want to go right you say there is some of the if you want to slow down you say slow to stop you say stop and go is go go go
11:22 pm
ya boy i'm not. i'm her off again. not easy but the docs are in listening to sasha you they're. pretty. big the big. time 1st even if i didn't mean to. that was truly a once in a lifetime experience but much like skiing it's an experience that can only be had if there's enough snow during the month of january and february snow is pretty much assured here in the black forest but still being at the mercy of the elements always makes for a bit of an unpredictable vacation but don't you worry even if there is no snow at all you won't be getting bored here in the black forest. with.
11:23 pm
the ski lifts may not be running but the dog sleds can run on wheels and the somewhat above the run in talk now is going at full tilt. if there's no snow in the black forest it doesn't mean your bike haitian is over. the summit toboggan run takes you almost 3 kilometers downhill. you could go a carriage ride. complete with mulled wine or a hot toddy. if you plan to go cross-country skiing get out your poles anyway and go hiking instead. and if you just can't do without ice at least there's some at the skating rink not only can you skate here you can also try your hand at curling. or you can
11:24 pm
just relax and enjoy the gorgeous scenery with or without snow. thankfully i have snow to spare so i can give sledding a shot no her skis this time. ok so that. there are countless to bottom friends in the black forest i'm at the one in lens kit the track is over a kilometer long and it's nothing for the faint hearted. usually there's a bus that will take you back up the mountain but it doesn't run very often and just missed it so i have to walk
11:25 pm

11:28 pm
not very creative yet but i would love to be considered an artist one day. everyone's talking about artificial intelligence and we are too. good computers and algorithms one day surpass them in creativity. art on the edge. or talk it global media forms from body parts 21.
11:29 pm
the next couple years like this couple memberships on the. motor journalist by sally not current champion running back full bag and a fine to do so 60 for an advantage depot the favorite with the political elite and the former east germany. ronny has to prove his chauffeur scales on the race track helps move well his kind of speed read. no problem if 60 minutes on t.w. . were systematically robbed by the nazis. and after them nor there were no signs of compensation. jewish art collectors on cotton and announced some on her 3rd reich
11:30 pm
goodness. still all the smart words just to get more money it was to eliminate everything connected to church culture today researchers are searching for the missing works of art. it's challenging for the experts. and painful for the descendants. to someone who did art in the 3rd brush starts feb 10th on d w. i am not very creative yet but i would love to be considered an artist one day i don't think that sophia is that intelligent at the moment why on earth should be construct a robot that looks like a human being ai's but the problem the issue is making sure that we with a rather for good mystery i think. everybody's talking about artificial intel.
