i am on the edge of the hans the lone mountain range in the east of germany it is a journey into history that's why i chose the hots narrow gauge railway for the trip it's been around for quite some time. my destination a town that's over one thousand years old. i'm in korea then book and i want to find out what earth this made the evil town world heritage status will be visiting the famous cathedral and treasury and be looking at what else you can experience here in the run up to christmas. of course we also show you what you can experience in the hearts melt you see in winter. a peruvian shows us the sights of her hometown.
and we have a pure video of a tour of japan. has been a unesco world heritage site since one thousand nine hundred ninety four other germantown has so many will preserved half timbered buildings i'm meeting a real expert on the subject a local tour guide. book is a world heritage site why is that. because of the beautiful have timid houses built over many centuries it's never been destroyed back had to stop it was written book has an architectural heritage stretching back four thousand years which you can still see today. is there a typical style for it began with. the most striking thing is the pointed beam
ends nominee and designs with exposed to beam and they round it to allow the water to drift off. the thirty years' war left a lot of destruction in its wake all over northern europe north are open and there was a building boom here on a really major scale because as i said the individual buildings were destroyed not entire district but those houses were rebuilt with simply decorative animals and carvings so that's where the pointed beam ends come from the bits are they just easier to cut than around a surface. and that innovation was only introduced here the idea didn't spread among other carpenters in the country other places didn't copy it they didn't like it so it's a unique characteristic. they are all beautiful buildings but they all look a bit cricket why is that they have a certain kind to the cop and his didn't build them crooked originally but the ground used to be seabed so there's lots of sand and sandstone. and have to move
houses don't really have foundations just sandstone blocks set on sand so the building shift in one direction the ground in another the wood used to make the houses was freshly cut and it was under the strain that you often see dogs and entryways that are about. the vertical beam sink down that forces the other wood in the house to corpus well. the fact that was largely spared from devastation even during the second world war is only one reason for the unique state of the town. the abundance of the troops at some songs of the war we were in the soviet occupation so the resulting poverty kind of froze the towns in the us on this you see that preservation in other parts of the world too i think if there's no money to change things they stay as they are and that's why we take to the town's condition.
i mean most this is something you have to see when you come to get involved with the organ i stand about it isn't a sense the original version of the heart i'm building dating back to the fourteenth century understand never went back then the studs ran continuously from the joists to the eaves. the ceiling of the room had been as that was secured with wooden shims it's still in excellent condition even though it was built into what was he six years of to one thousand six hundred thirty it would be hard to find a half to that house much older than that because it's a really interesting building since. as you can see everything's gearing up for winter and the holiday season the hearts mountains also have a lot to offer for outdoor in through the u.s.
this time of the year winter sports and. beautiful scenery. if you're an early riser with a bit of luck you might catch sunrise over the hops mountains from their highest peak the broke one thousand one hundred forty one meters up. with a meteorologist at the weather station here it's a nonstop natural spectacle even on bike to the cold mornings like this one. is funny told often it was gorgeousness morning the boy the air was very clear and the trees covered in ice and it was like a toy in the sun rises everything is bathed in pink say god with the snow it's now minus twenty two degrees celsius dip it really crunches under your boots was
a lovely winter morning. twenty exist fantastic visibility but would not see if you can see one hundred seventy kilometers all the way to hess and it has been shown you can also clearly see the bustle cokers were not in their own mountain signify it's a reason that her indian forest could be more beautiful than. when the weather's like this how about a romantic train journey to the summits. the rail service serving the hearts national park runs nine trains a day during the winter time.
but many visitors prefer to do the journey uphill on foot. ever since the early one nine hundred ninety s. they know smith has been climbing the broken nearly every day. this couple are already on their way down tells them how when the weather's nice he has to go out he's an optimist rain or shine he hits the trail to have it all begin to winter is just starting most of this year doesn't really get going until february or march which is when we get snow drifts around to five meters deep but it lets in the last few years and take it off but i hope this winter will be a good one thousand nine hundred ninety eight thousand the time was in october which renshaw rain as one official said and so that was something. for dr reaching not goal i actually wanted to start only coming out every second day but i can't resist the mountain. the broken is popular with hikers and day trippers but winter
sports fans prefer the second highest peak in the hearts of the form back. because there's often not enough natural snow in the region ski lift operators have to lend a helping hand. if you're listening to them and we have to make a lot of self-hate of us with the work itself is really murderous lot especially when you do it about what you know during the day and then snow quite a bit on the not so the mix was really excellent primo that's a huge amount of work you holding up a good bass over such a large area off from bone. but it's worth it and with a little luck if the weather plays ball visitors can revel in another stunning win today in the hearts mountains. the history of friedland book goes back to the tenth century and for a lot of the first established a last resting place here for his father he had
a church built on. the silk and a convent. became a pleasant it's a seat of power visited by emperors and kings and the town accumulated quite a bit of will the middle ages. pastor accused of costumes takes me to the treasury here you can find the cathedrals famous collection of artifacts which was lost for forty years. but what is actually in the treasury. don't trust the state it's mostly made up of liturgical objects objects made in the middle ages that the field of function in the church. during services for example or things that were perhaps used display normal aerated during mass and given that it can toggle in today the treasures are displayed in a cabinet seen in the for viewing purposes only in the google isn't the treasure is comprised of
a range of smaller and larger items is there perhaps one thing that stands out companies on the not really because even some of the smaller objects have a great history lesson that was abusive to the most important items are made from very different things that have been put together the diligence to go. as it still isn't so much the samwell gospel for example it isn't a limited work and that later received the cover of gold the hudspeth and good and i'm glad that cover also had materials worked into it and dignified than it will and used to give money. away to troll and. in the open the book like this has a history stretching back hundreds of years and was a long time in the making and doesn't that makes every object in the cathedral treasury a work with its own unique and exciting story. in all things and you see the shots fired into the treasury disappeared from creating books for a while where was it. to such a visit funnily enough the treasures here have
a knack for being stolen which i started during the reformation. back then they have to send the treasure off to relatives for safe keeping the fleet to death because she was worried that it would be taken away after the monastery had come down on the side of the protestants a bit later holy and had the treasure taken elsewhere fortunately it was then right back when it was again the most recent stories from the period after the second world war when kramer was occupied by the americans significant portions of the treasure were sent back home to the us they were stolen and disappeared to how was it to seek bones and. was a distinct forms and. becomes who discovered it in the us and brought it back here . when the treasure of such significance is stolen one that's also well documented and there are always people keeping an eye out to see if it pops up again somewhere. one day one of the missing items appeared on the market which came to the attention of people who hadn't any case suspected it could be in the us the
only was a hundred could be in this news in terms of mix on the board and they started trying to track down there. at the end of the one nine hundred eighty s. they managed to find the treasure that had been stolen food and the items were returned to germany at the start of the one nine hundred ninety s. and from ten months ago you can come to. another little recommendation once you've visited the church and the cathedral treasure check out these terrorists afterwards. as you know we visit viewers all over the world and they show us the sights of their home towns this time we joined lima the capital of peru it was founded. the sixteenth century by spanish colonists so it's not quite as old as queer the book but the old town of lima is also a unesco world heritage site. i
laugh. i'm a real welcome to lima it's a beautiful day and i'd like to show you around my city and. that's what i got to start a center of lima underpass on my your that the city's most important buildings can be found healthy and i think. that the government palace. and the town whole eat this is where lima was founded in fifteenth century finally it's also withdrew declared itself independent of spain in eight hundred twenty one i'm looking at that so now we're right in front of the government palace every day here you can see the changing of the gun it's a big attraction yes but that's a mess that is. thanks to the. town that has been the clear unesco world heritage site because of the numerous colonial
buildings with the beautiful balconies going to. the this is one of the most beautiful buildings in. the church of san francisco and look as it's known for its catacombs. i mean they want it bad today it's you know many picture it was. a human i would have to believe it is the only south american capital that lies directly on the coast yes that also when one of my favorite places is the prominent it connects the center to other districts of a city i learned many years love to come here with their families to get a workout that we never had that much of the. exceptions. some of this is a typical sky here it's always great but never rains that's why it's called the great city they say it's the kind of a donkey they would. do
if you come to a parade if you're sure to want to take home souvenirs this is an ink a market that sells had made crafts and there are many different cultures and through most of them indigenous let's see what we can have to. put them up plenty of fun stuff mostly made a full moon by yes well actually i might. have. ever had one going to the bridge of some of these people crossing it for the first time i suppose to hold their breath for a second and i could wish i could have been there what i preach takes you just say
to hell but i'm closer to my family strict. i said the one time for a delicious purpose our cruise national drink it's made of brandy a sugar syrup. and a shot of i was stood up as. i don't believe the bad guy do. you know how to answer him the central square and get on cause i hope you enjoyed it and that you'll come and visit us one day in lima you know and i said that. it's high season in tribute to book during advent weekend like this one and it's really the perfect place to get into the holiday mood which.
