i'm in dortmund's the city in germany's war region isn't necessarily known for its beauty but it is for many other things. for me shopping in the city center football to fall below zero for those you know my long hard work stealing cars and if i think of that a beer or two. ok sounds like a plan but first let's take a little sightseeing tour of. austin and best and how big are dortmund central shopping streets it's been an important commercial route ever since the middle ages. dark one is also very green at least on the summer that is here and best spot on park you'll find one of the city's most. most famous landmarks the t.v.
tower nicknamed floria. and then there's lake phoenix an artificial body of water on the grounds of a former steel plant. just like many other cities in the rural area dortmund was once an important center for the coal and steel industries its second claim to fame was football and while most of the industry has fallen victim to structural changes football is still a source of pride and joy in the region in this edition i want to find out how all of this dortmund's past and present shapes the city to this day and there's much more on the show of course. we'll check out ecstatic say tonight dedicated to industrial culture in the region. globe trotters steve painters discovers the pharaoh islands between norway and iceland.
and as always we'll have the viewer video of this time it takes is around does take a stamp. boardman's phoenix lake is an exclusive residential area and a popular place to stroll. but there are still remnants of the area's industrial past to be found the lake was created only on the eastern part of the former steel plant the old blast furnace was conserved in phoenix west as a memorial to the city's industrial past. they know. i'm eating high can ignite he she gives regular guided tours through the complex so. tell me it's this one's mine. who's. the best part of. the tour it takes you away up in the air thirty meters above
ground to be exact and the view is amazing. phoenix western iron ore into raw iron from here it was transported to phoenix east where the lake stands today bare the unrefined iron was processed further to produce steel. sawdust of so that's a steel works here we have an overview the lake is here and between them there was a railway connection that's now a great cycling and walking trail. standing in the blast furnace complex. the plant was in operation until nine hundred ninety eight that's what i know for the times were very different back then i was the air. no money going near to dog only hung up your washing on the wrong day once.
we reach the plant itself we're off to the engine room. from here and engineers steered the wagons that would take the materials forty meters up and into the blast furnace. so you didn't have to on the next platform back when the facility was active the air here was very unhealthy. people only came here with industrial style breathing operates has. some good it. in the regions golden age up to nine thousand people worked in phoenix east and west now the only people here are tourists like us. there are many industrial plants that were repurposed following the structural transformation of their region sledge towers were turned into audio installations railroads into bike lanes but
the hand that coking plant and dortmund was maintained as a monument to the city's industrial heritage just like phoenix with let's take a look. at steel works like phoenix westmead coke as a fuel for the blast furnace is that smelt iron or coke is derived from cone until nine hundred ninety to find thousand tons of the fuel were produced every day in homs or cocaine plant. those days are over. because quite soon i worked the ovens until the plant closed now he guides visitors through the old facility. there's. it was backbreaking work then there was that moment and summer when it was already hot outside there was radiated heat on the oven roof temperatures on it
were never under sixty degrees celsius. the heart of the cocaine pound is the machine whole. if you deceased so you can tell how hard they work here i just find it impressive that they're trying to maintain it. into the hands of coking plant is being maintained but not polished into a high gloss tourist destination it shows what happens to an industrial complex when left to itself now nature is slowly reclaiming their site. i can dig now shows me to the dortmunder you another symbol of the city. this building embodies structural change in the region it's been turned from an industrial hobby into
a popular site for the service and creative sectors in what used to be the union brewery rather than beer you'll now find exhibits a museum and art project. as it is i mean. this is basically my favorite exhibition even though i say that on almost every floor but that you two in particular represents what makes this museum special here you can not only look at modern art you can create a true self. and this exhibit that means taking your own pictures. you symbolizes the modern the region like no other institution what led to the structural change. now that's had them into the one doesn't it i don't want to do with the fact that globalization made it cheaper to buy cola graw than to mine it here so in the one nine hundred seventy s. the nation more and more was but was abroad simply because it was basically for
money. as i thought going to go and you know what that and jobs here were lost in the late one nine hundred seventy s. dortmund has lost eighty five thousand jobs lost in the comeback how come that changed because at some point there were new perspectives and projects that would as this because i thought as mentioned you think what's important was that there were people who can simply think a step further than we can imagine it ultimately started with car guns and the i.b.m. shop park in the one nine hundred ninety s. how did that he had the idea that it wasn't about each town doing its own thing but about the entire region working together. since a very important signal the dog commanders were the first to be hit hard by the crisis and authorities here had to think about how to master it. at the time of the mission and they did how did that impact tourism in the region. of overnight stays is rising constantly and it's not just because dartmouth has
a very successful football team it's also being recommended as a destination for short breaks for people in germany. and there are increasing numbers of visitors from abroad who are fascinated by the way a modern technology oriented system can link to its industrial past that industry and you can plunge into history and at the same time enjoy the green and attractive city around it you know and o'clock even start. thanks for the tour in the dark that's my pleasure the more areas biggest cultural event is the next night dedicated to the celebration of industrial culture for one day two thousand artists take over forty five venues in twenty one cities one of them of course dortmund the most unimaginable locations are turning to stay just for music for theater and even for fire shows check it out.
we make an easy going start in duisburg north landscape park taking historic train over the two thousand called compound. word notable going to there's something like this there as well good thing we want to revisit the tone of i'm coal mine we really wanted to see the light show that. we're going to be old zinc factory and. the henry iron works in how do you know opera singer tina zick is trying to catch a man. or woman a little something really. good. is this woman worried that her husband will succumb. ok you can take care of himself i'm not worried. that. it's starting to grow
dark and the extra festival begins to show its luminous side. outside the iron works or dancing down in the basement there's thrills and chills but. it's a nice please don't kill me stab at the nameless one. and is don't worry i won't so by the seen as your body can no longer take the pain you will die on your own. the hunza coking plant is also of and you. must future lots of fun lots of visitors nice guy it's it's grace a grace event. then there's a fire show accompanied by a string quartet. the
extra shift night of industrial culture takes place every june and it always gets the entire rural region rocking. now i want to find out a bit about dortmund's other claim to fame football. it was october of twenty fifteen it's been home to the german football museum a kind of one stop shop for football fans young and old. it's a place that documents the nation's sporting past by taking a look back at some of the most glorious moments and. herman football history like the world cup win if nine hundred fifty four. different sections of
the exhibit are dedicated to club and women's football. at its heart and the trophy room you'll find many of the sport's most coveted awards including of course germany's world cups. there are a total of one thousand six hundred exhibits the biggest by far is the bust that carted around germany's two thousand and fourteen world champion team. and now let's get out of here because globe trotters steve amisha is waiting for us on the ferro islands that's an archipelago about halfway between iceland and norway popular mostly among hikers and bird watchers no wonder because the landscape is truly impressive.
to the faroe islands in these episodes i will show you in silence by hiking on the water bootsy collins and movie the islands from above from a helicopter you're ready then put your when the rain jackets and we're ready to go . now we're in the capital and here we are staying like the locals staying in their little brown. shutters. oh. it's true. if
about to go kayaking. with hunts who is preparing supper and i'll get some fries you and then. we're off to. wrong a lot of fun like along the coast here especially because we don't have strong winds and currents so it's very relaxing to slide along the coast and see this rocks here and the landscape around little villages over there creek nice. clean if you have seen one image of the faroe islands and it's probably this this waterfall here. it's called the model of. but it's better known for the village which is up there which is called. so this is
a very very picturesque spot at least here on the boat because we want to see if instead they are going to be. starting from said there were. and it looks like the same weather so far. at least. at least. if. you see where these conferences live. at least. seeing a fair islands from the ground is pretty nice but it's even nicer when you get up into the air so i'm now taking a look at the flight. and
that's it from the fair islands see you soon. in dortmund one football club is king the black and yellow dortmund it was founded in this building in one thousand and nine so this has become a favorite destination for dortmund fans making pilgrimages from around the country . but listed buildings in the area make it a worthwhile visit keven for people who don't like the beautiful game. full disclosure i'm a huge fan of byron munich dortmund's biggest rival so kind of moving behind enemy lines here and i'm starting to realize that no matter how hard i try there's no getting around this team in this city.
one good example the holy trinity church just a stone's throw from the famous ball these plots. here people don't just come to praise the lord but also their teens. of course oppose the flats and the holy trinity church are the only places of worship for dortmund fans in town their actual cathedral is the team's stadium signaling it do not park. six no it do not park is the biggest stadium in germany for one football. a time german champions as well as european. up winners and have taken the laurels in both the champions league and intercontinental cup their fans in the city are
extremely dedicated. when there's no match taking place the stadium is open for guided tours. we now have room for more than eighty thousand people but most in the stand on the south terrace there are just under twenty five thousand places they're almost off for season ticket holders it's practically always sold out. cult. daughter natives are hard fish lives and works for privacy a dog meant she's both a fan and a stadium guy she leads visitors through the stadium system of tunnels and even into the holiest of holies the locker room. in the heart of the stadium the past comes to life again in the policy of the team's museum it houses historical exhibits pictures and even a replica of
a pub because the football club was actually born at a regular table there. may not go to men founded back then i don't think they could have imagined what they were founding and what it would be a hundred years later it's very special what. is on. the campus had great success and a few small scandals at one training camp for instance as packed a bra into a teammate suitcase that set off a crisis with his wife back home. and that muslims in the end figured out they had to help get him out of trouble so they had the first and only team meeting today with a woman in attendance so. that. football stories from the region aren't just for the horsey adoption fans.
where there is football you can be certain beer isn't far away dortmund has a long brewing tradition i'm headed to the popular bar to meet up with a beer summit marcus malva he and his colleagues have a mission to teach stuart when there is more about the quality and delights of their favorite beverage to reach that goal they offer brewing seminars and beer tasting. divide we've chosen three great specialty beers here we'll start with a dortmund you believe beer it's a very new beer that's just come out for the fiftieth anniversary of the daughter you are landmark one zone bought size one going to pour it in quite carefully for its melon that has a sweet bready note like brioche but you'll also smell the hops. definitely . beer like this practically demands
a savory snack to mark his recommends the homemade potato bread and sour cream the perfect pairing for this very mild. man. next up an herbal beer from belgium the so-called good it's triple ferment and pretty strong and for some reason smells like apple juice but. it's really sparkly isn't it will never tasted anything like it. and this is a beer that's great to serve as an aperitif finish on paying glass to surprise people with washington. on june the third one marcus serves it with onion chutney it's from dortmund and called divots coffee chocolate and that's been the lead. for me it's reddish in color and the taste reminds me a freshly baked riah bread. not one that's not full so which
beer did you like best most of the fun well they were all pretty great but i'll go for the goat the good be the outsider yeah the outsider. even if i'm thoroughly enjoying all of this right now we should leave town again and france out with check in here is anton and anastasia from russia this end of the video from there make a scene in the can down mountains in his baking sun from the looks of it they had a lovely track.
