4:35 pm
most visited cities in germany just behind berlin and munich. it took a long time and was more expensive than expected but it seems to have paid off the filo many concert hall has won many fans since its opening in 2017 that makes it quite difficult to get concert tickets but the visit to the observation deck the plaza is free. a great new balcony 360 degrees pure hamburg. where are you from but i'm from the united states but i've been living in bahrain for 10 years. what do you do here i'm just here on a holiday spending break in hamburg with my good friend young. peter and enjoying
4:36 pm
the city where you from from russia or value like you're up here at the old if you know many. because it's a landmark in hamburg and it's a place you have to visit if you don't have the. money and come here is all this is a good as i heard that it's very difficult to get tickets good so you just get in line and hope for the best and it wasn't a fluke is that at 6 pm we'll go to the box office and hope we get tickets so you know any tricks to get tickets just luck. doesn't that's all that's so i'll give it a try i seem to be lucky. but if you break good luck. hamburg is not just a port city hamburg is also a music city composers such as philip and johannes bombs used to work here and hamburg has also left its mark on rock and pop music history. and hamburg sang probably district the beatles gained important experience for their international career it all started in the early sixty's on the stage office
4:37 pm
a legendary place that has made history. 91617 years after the end of world war 2 hamburg's rubble had been cleared away and its economy was flourishing. but the generation gap was huge young people were looking for alternatives and amusement. rock'n'roll was new and played an important role but teenagers could only listen to it on the radio and in a few clubs. 7 local big wig months later and bucks and way to host founded the stock club the name said it all. behind beyond almost else i'm get sung we started up something that reflected the mood that was simmering among young people. that's why we put posters up all over hamburg saying the hard times are
4:38 pm
over and morning music has had its day and i managed to sign the beatles. when i was going i mean. we opened on april 13th 1962 with a big bang. and 2 to 5 months each of the pieces got 500 a week because he needed i'll never forget how a kid from the port who might have been able to shout out some orders suddenly had to announce the beatles song on the line about what was going to be. opening the stock market starts for the fab four's meteoric rise. they played a total of $79.00 gigs that. he says were ecstatic there was live
4:39 pm
music to 6 am 7 days a week. thousands of people could fit into the club magically attracted by stars they'd only heard on radio. from fats domino to little rich. but the enjoyment had its dark side how big was home to a unique use protection squad that carefully scrutinize the sometimes under age visits his to the stock. sex drugs and rock'n'roll were thrown in the side of the police some classic dialogues took place. there how old are you i'll be 18 but when will you be 18 in august. you just turned 17. yeah. of course many have been teenagers trying to get into the hottest club in the city as a challenge. which involves schools and i think everyone under
4:40 pm
18 has to leave. and we found ways to get back into the kitchen once they caught us again. but less conformist teenagers remain to see and on what day is hardly anyone came. the rock and pop stars became more expensive so in 1969 the star-club closed deep in debt. the building of the star-club was later demolished in the courtyard of the new building you will find this plaque. holy is still one of the most famous districts of hamburg famous and. here you will find pubs and grandfathers a red light district and culture and all of it not far from the old.
4:41 pm
holy even has a small museum where you can find out what has shaped the district. because pollie was originally a border region between the danish city of atlanta and they have the attic city of hamburg residents here knew how to use this kind of free space dance halls and cheap entertainment half of the part of that poli since the 17th century similar business. image of prostitution crime evolved over the years if you really have to about. something is in constant flux i'd say the red light district image which now plays a role in many tourists perceptions and in marketing strategies it's very much influenced by the 1970 s. and eighty's. and. lots of clichés emerge that.
4:42 pm
for example the gold chains moment hairdos and so. on survivor. nobody pays so with these questions they try to attract tourists by saying we have a red light district we have gangsters that might interest some people but only i think so. we have the sump poly museum don't think of ourselves in that we try to present everything in the development of the district and we try to enable visitors to understand how certain myths were formed interesting to me and some are just myths and some are cliches and if she's to counter that the museum shows portraits of women who have shaped. but some didn't so what did they do to earn a place on the wall i've been here and here we see susie rich she and her husband own susie show bar and i think it's the only table dancing establishment under female management to get. to him and i find that quite important finish so my daughter does have business run differently they say so as
4:43 pm
a better or worse farah what the women who work there say is clear yes yes ok. it is there anything you would like to see changes. in time just right now i want to stop rents from rising so it remains possible for these things to develop knishes and spaces where unusual concepts still have a chance and that's. why in a new place in 4 i wouldn't have been here concept and i'm ok i'm done otherwise i think we should all recognize the value of a district that has experienced so much freedom and retained it over the centuries that it's special and the liberties we have are worth protecting. his insistence that he's done cranks that sums it up nicely. we regularly visit spectators who show us the sights of their hometowns in today's media local thought we went to houston texas it's the 4th largest city in the united states and but what's
4:44 pm
interesting architecture and graffiti art as well as a space center. how do you welcome houston my name is gonzo to 47 feet the street artists here in the city born and raised and i'm looking forward to showing you my favorite parts of the city. so you might think you know houston usually when you think of it though you think cowboys horses and barbecue which we have but not all the time you think it is street art houston is a great time it's a great place and it's really open to the yarns.
4:45 pm
how do you welcome houston my name is gonzo 247 i make her feel the street artists here in the city born and raised and i'm looking forward to showing you my favorite parts of the city. so you might think you know houston usually when you think of it though you think cowboys horses and barbecue which we have but not all the times you think it is street art houston is a great time it's a great place and it's really open to the arts. so here we are right in the middle of downtown and you can see everything is bigger in texas we have the architecture we have the theater district we have everything
4:46 pm
you can need the diversity is here this is our symphony texas. ok we are downtown houston amongst the tower and skyscrapers tranquility park a nice a waste of green space for the everyday person to enjoy inspired by the 1st phrase spoken from the moon houston tranquility base here the eagle has landed. one of the things i love about tranquility park really the name says it all if you can listen around you hear the nice kind of coldness of the water it's very refreshing very soothing it's a really good place to come you have a hectic day in downtown you can come here relaxed. when visiting houston another must see is space center houston since we are the space city. so as a kid i used to watch these things go up into space it's amazing for me to be here
4:47 pm
in houston space city and be able to walk inside an actual space shuttle. so this is what it's like to live inside the shuttle check this out this is the sleeping bag where the a strap yourself in for a good night's rest we even have the actual astronaut suit amazing. so after a long day in the city there's only one way to cool down and that's what a nice tall texan beer. well that was my day here in houston hope you guys had
4:48 pm
a good time hope you guys can cool down next time you hear don't forget visit houston and so i lose. pete elder therese they are a pretty inexpensive way to do some sightseeing in hamburg the ferries belong to the public transportation network. i'm on the way from visiting pollie piers down the old. everywhere there is something to see for example the museum harbor in uganda. the people of hamburg are very proud of the harbor and they show that every year around the 7th of may on that day in the year 1189 emperor bob or also is said to have issued a license for the port and that's
4:49 pm
a pretty good reason to celebrate say over 1000000 visitors every year. even if the charter founding the port is a 13th century forgery people have been celebrating it since 1977 the birthday bash attracts locals and visitors to the for 3 days. notice and everyone's always in a good mood it's always relaxed and handed is always worth seeing and off to shift it's great to climb on to the vessels and see how things work on the tall ships it does sort out for physical assailant i thought everything the port the atmosphere water the sea ships. the ports anniversary traditionally begins with the grand arrival parade with vessels ranging from motor boats to tall ships and all more than $300.00 ships come
4:50 pm
to the festival every year. but that was the specter. the mic stands on to land where concerts on stages and vendors selling arts and crafts and food. for the topic of. among the festivals highlights is the traditional tugboat ballet with skipper's acting as choreographers. the ports origins may be veiled in mystery but the people of this hanseatic city make the most of it with maritime displays and celebrations every year.
4:51 pm
you can also take a dip in hamburg's river after years of pollution the water quality of the elder is clean enough to swim and bathing in the elbe it has a long tradition is specially during the 19th century journalist and author helen has already written 2 books about it like many locals she's a fan of the river. what moves you to swim in the elba every day. every day was like it's a great pleasure it's just wonderful. the elderlies at my doorstep i can go in it when i want i can do what i want in the air almost everything and this is sensuous experience the water in the flowing streaming rising and falling water i enjoyed immensely but what should i keep in mind when getting into the water there are certainly a few dangers. you have to be able to swim extremely well beginners training is not
4:52 pm
enough. you should also be able to feel the river bed under your feet then you basically safe that way you can always scramble out of the water if you need to. you shouldn't get too near the shipping channels you should swim when the water is rising because then it's coming in from the sea and at least feels cleaner than when it's ebbing and coming from the port that's really of course never when drunk and not in a thunderstorm all the traditional swimming rules that apply to lakes also apply here would you not the only swimmer here in the over there are certainly other people too do you think this is a new trend to get. i hope the custom of swimming in the elgar returns. since german reunification many sewage treatment plants have been built in eastern germany and the water has become much cleaner. for 20 or 30 years it was really. i think the idea of having nature at your doorstep on the outskirts of a city with a population of millions and being able to use it out should be revived and then
4:53 pm
more and more people can see how lovely. my mare mention the american this is beaches in hamburg have lots of visitors and that weekends in the summer and during school holidays there are many tourists in america and most know that the water ebbs and flows and avoid lying too close to the edge when the water is rising. make so now all of us are. already. and what do you wish for the future should be area be developed more or do you have a concrete vision for how you see your city of hamburg and. fenders yes i think it would be great to rethink and planning so that when something new is built in that it takes the elbow into account says the river remains accessible though of course making sure the city remains protected as well. it. should really be giving us been made on the magellan terraces in the half and city
4:54 pm
district and now. there were some good ideas there are steps leading to the water and sometimes into the voice and that's great when it works but it happens much to rarely. thanks so much. of course i have to try this now my 1st swim in the elbe it just the thing on such a beautiful summer day. now we leave the old and cross the atlantic because our weekly the mail takes us to mexico and guatemala we go to him from south korea has sent us his travel impressions it's a collage of adventures and dan seems. happier
4:55 pm
as. you point out. to bring up. the point. and you bring up. that is one. of the. things. that you want to. play out.
4:56 pm
there is hardly a better place to end a day on the place in the bar it's famous in hamburg what a wonderful view. place. without the elbow that's impossible the river is hamburg lifeline so on the one hand it's a useful traffic route and on the other it's in a way of tranquility so no wonder the el that fascinates so many people including myself clear.
