Wunderschön! Luxemburg – Kleines Land, großes Herz Unterwegs mit Stefan Pinnow

WDR Fernsehen, Sonntag, 23. November 2014, 20.15 – 21.45 Uhr

Es liegt in der Mitte Europas, ist ungefähr so groß wie das Saarland und hat etwa so viele Einwohner wie Bremen: das Großherzogtum Luxemburg. Stefan Pinnow zeigt, dass der Staat und die Stadt Luxemburg mehr sind als ein Finanzplatz und eine der Schaltzentralen der EU. Begleitet wird er von einem Fernseh-Urgestein: Jean Pütz wuchs in Luxemburg, der Heimat seiner Mutter, auf. Gemeinsam besuchen sie sein (Groß-)Elternhaus in Remich an der Mosel, sehen sich Luxemburg unter Tage an, besuchen die Ausstellung „Family of Man“ in der Abtei von Clervaux und erkunden die Hauptstadt samt „Europameile“ und Kasematten. Stefan Pinnow macht einen Ausflug auf die Burg Vianden, stellt die warmen Quellen in Bad Mondorf vor und gibt Tipps für eine Wanderung ins Müllerthal.

Wiederholung am 30. November um 14.15 Uhr.
