In “Bayern – The South” we travel from the Zugspitze mountain via Berchtesgaden to Munich. On the Zugspitze we meet a physicist Hannes Vogelmann, who works at an institute for environmental research. It is his mission to build a laser system for stratospheric research to gain insight into climate change. At Berchtesgarden National Park, we meet Ulrich Brendel, eagle expert, who investigates how paragliding affects eagle protection.
In Munich, Andreas Burmester, director of the Doerner Institute, is running the creation of a general “knowledge data base” in order to preserve museums’ works of art as well as scientific knowledge for successive generations. This programme offers a tour of the picturesque landscapes of Bavaria as well as presenting the work of many Bavarians passionately committed to environmental science and keeping scientific records.
