It inspired Hermann Hesse not only to write some of his most famous novels like Siddhartha, but also to create watercolour paintings.

Anna and Gabriele Braglia have always shared a great passion and love for art and the foundation brings their instinctive choices when it comes to collecting pieces of art, both from national and international artists, to life. Put simply, it was often love at first sight and the decision-making of which new piece to acquire could have almost been seen as being fairly spontaneous, from the outside. But in fact, the Braglias showed great expertise and knowledge for their shared passion.
Picasso to Balla and Modigliani and thus building an outstanding collection. In , the Braglias decided to share their passion and hence promote art itself to a wider audience through a large exhibition space. This space is fully equipped with state-of-the-art technologies for the preservation and display of this important collection, that now includes well over pieces. That is how the Braglia Foundation was finally born. The Braglia sons, Riccardo and Enrico, were also on board with this heartfelt family mission, and still support the Foundation to this day. Over 40 art works by Zoran Music are part of the collection, including oil paintings, drawings and 20 watercolours.
The German expressionism collection is also of particular importance. During the mids, the Braglias visited the Art Basel and almost coincidentally noticed works by Paul Klee. Love at first sight, this marked the beginning of their ongoing passion for German expressionism. As a result, they continuously visited many exhibitions focusing on works of this art movement and bought a large number of important pieces. Vibrant expressions of colours, lights and feelings are the trademark of this period. Paintings, drawings and sculptures from Italian and International artists of the 20th century are presented in a thematically organised way.
The Braglia Foundation also hosts additional exciting exhibitions as artistic director Gaia Regazzoni Jaeggli points out. From Kandinsky to Nolde will certainly be a true highlight for any lovers of German expressionism and those who would like to discover it. Thanks to the temporary merge of the two collections, visitors will gain a comprehensive and somewhat unique insight into this fascinating and vibrant art period. The Braglia Foundation not only showcases remarkable and important art works but also adds a certain personal flavour and atmosphere. The spirit of the founders Gabriele Braglia and his late wife Anna fills this special place and the collection is a celebration of both the art and their inspirational passion for it.

The Ballyana Industrial Heritage museum offers visitors an authentic atmosphere and industrial history to touch: It is allowed to hold and touch many of the objects and the exhibition addresses all senses. Abegg is the president of a foundation that was established in , and runs the museum.
Old industrial machinery is rattling in the background, because here machines are not only exhibited, but staff members also demonstrate how they work. The collection opens every first and third Sunday of the month between 2pm and 5pm.
Pre-booked guided tours are possible at any time. Industrial, company and family history are closely connected here. Even though Bally today is mainly known for its shoes, originally the company started as weaving mill and for the first 50 years exclusively produced ribbons. Shoes only came into focus after The Bally family originates in the Austrian Vorarlberg. The first Bally moved to Switzerland around and started trading with ribbons. With a ribbon weaving mill and shoe factory they laid the foundation for an industrial empire and a world-renowned brand.
The company and family history is presented in all its facets. After originally fabricating shoes to supply other retail shops, from onwards the company systematically opened its own shops. At that point Bally already existed for more than years and was led in the fourth generation. Still today, Bally stands for luxurious bags, shoes and accessories. Die Sammlung ist jeden ersten und dritten Sonntag des Monats zwischen 14 und Industrie-, Firmen- und Familiengeschichte sind hier eng miteinander verbunden.

Middle: Restaurant. Right: Habsburg Castle. Today, adults and children can experience this unique history at the original site in the Canton of Aargau. Habsburg Castle majestically towers above the landscape and already denotes power and dominance with its appearance.
In this castle the noble gentlemen lived with their servants, and here their rise to become a world dynasty began. Auf diesem Schloss lebten die adligen Herrschaften mit ihren Bediensteten, und hier begann ihr Aufstieg zu einer Weltdynastie. Today, visitors can immerse themselves into this history at Habsburg Castle. In one can even join the breakfast table of the crowned heads. Audio installations reveal who exactly sits at the table and why the Austrian emperor and the Russian czar were welcomed as guests around In and around the castle six audio stations reveal facts at the touch of a button, about the Habsburgs and their rise to become a global power; an experience for the entire family.
Last but not least, Habsburg Castle is situated amidst a beautiful hiking region and thus, is perfect for afternoon trips. How about the almost two-hour-long hike to nearby castle Wildegg, for example? Experience where Albert Einstein single handedly changed our understanding of physics Today Albert Einstein is recognized as one of the most important scientists of all time. But when he came to Bern he was still at the beginning of his research, struggling to make ends meet while working on pioneering papers. It is open to the public.
Among them were The existence and size of atoms, The special theory of relativity and the later Nobel-Prize-winning The light quantum hypothesis. Albert Einstein spent an essential period of his life in Bern: In February he moved there after applying for a position at the Federal Patent Office. Still unemployed until June , he survived as private tutor for physics and mathematics. When he finally had a steady income, he married his girlfriend Mileva Maric in early January The apartment on the second floor, where Einstein, his wife and later their first son lived, is today open to visitors.
Even before moving to Bern, Albert Einstein engaged with the most fundamental questions of physics. This period — an incubation time, in retrospect — erupted in Even though Albert Einstein worked 48 hours a week at the office, in only six months he finished five pioneering papers. The Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein with the Hilti Art Foundation offers a diverse programme of contemporary and modern art. The impressive black cube right in Vaduz provides spacious exhibition rooms on two floors.

The sight of the display discs jumping instantaneously to the next position in no less fascinating a spectacle that it was back in You were born in Speyer and grew up there too. At the moment you live in Berlin.
Why is that city your chosen home? Steinbach: Berlin never sleeps, especially my neighborhood — Prenzlauer Berg. But just like in every metropolis, there are less beautiful corners.
But the city also lives through its contrasts. What do you love about this specific role? Steinbach: This figure permanently offers situations of conflict and makes this role interesting for me. However, I really like the fact that she can be courageous and a fighter in exactly these moments. Why has Tatort been an integral part of German life for decades? Steinbach: I think that the dominical TV evening, that usually has over nine million Tatort viewers, has become a nice tradition for many.
Even during the broadcast, one can already see a lively exchange on social networks. Tatort, Kriminal Theatre — it seems as if thrillers and crime stories are your favourite genre. How do you choose your roles? Steinbach: Yes, but it only seems so. The audience enjoy it immensely and roar with laughter every time. This is the major difference to filming. Here, you only know whether the audience actually likes it after broadcasting.
The many TV series that are based on. But in general, I think that the roles choose me. What can we look forward to in ? Steinbach: Maybe a role in a different genre! Does the one, absolute dream role exist for you? But playing a doctor, perhaps in a series, would be a pleasure for me — maybe also because I originally wanted to study medicine and taking care of others is somehow in my blood too.
What wishes and dreams does Sandra Steinbach still have? I believe that we should never stop dreaming and wishing and that we thereby and while realising our dreams, should never let ourselves be intimidated. Peace on the inside, peace on the outside. Learn to breathe again, that is it. This year Europa-Park presents a variety of new developments and structural changes.

Rose village There is a saying about tulips stemming from Amsterdam, and roses stemming from Bad Nauheim. The Steinfurth part of town houses the oldest rose village in Germany.
Over time, the hot mineral springs turned the town into a wealthy place of significance. While the salty springs were discovered and used by Celtic settlers already, Franconian colonisers re-established salt extraction from onwards at a medieval settlement with 13 salt boiling units. Originally built to enhance salinity levels, five graduation buildings with a total stretch of metres reach ten metres high. Water was absorbed from the brine trickling down from the large surface of blackthorn walls.
The Nauheim graduation works count as the oldest of their kind in Germany. In the following decades, Bad Nauheim grew into a renowned spa for cardiac and vascular diseases for prominent guests of the European nobility as well as the national and international bourgeoisie.

An exceptional event location: Right where German telecommunication originated Situated in the middle of the German capital Berlin, between Gendarmenmarkt und Stadtschloss, the representative Telekom building is a unique place for events and celebrations of all kind — from conferences to galas or political events. The Deutsche Telekom Representative Office in Berlin Mitte allows the opportunity to take a step back in time and to the origins of telecommunication: It is the oldest building that still exists in the German capital from the early times of telecommunication.
Even during that time the building featured the newest technology, like a pneumatic post that allowed sending messages through the building — fast and effectively. Contemporary critics praised the extension building that opened a short time later for its architecture and the overall elegant effect. The building was heavily damaged during the Second World War, so that only parts of the original building still exist today, like the classy atrium.
Originally built as a representative operating room with. For more than years now, the building has been a monument to technological innovations.

KML VISION: Automatic image analysis for life sciences Various areas, ranging from research for medical purposes, to water and air analyses, require a close study of a vast number of images, often of microscopic nature. Not only is an expert required to correctly analyse said images, but the process to finish this comprehensive task also takes many hours.
This means customers only pay for images that have actually been analysed. IKOSA has a modular structure, making it easy to add individual solutions and use them immediately. The platform is accessible either through a standard web browser or a defined interface. This approach allows for flexibility and easy integration into existing tools such as microscopes or viewing software, to name but a few. Making state-of-the-art technologies for automation available in such a straightforward way is absolutely unique in the market.
The two founders Michael Mayrhofer and Philipp Kainz were dedicating themselves to researching automatic image analysis at the Medical University of Graz, when they realised that there was a huge demand for this field of application in a wide range of various industries, such as the biomedical field of tissue analysis. Here, enlarged images have to be scanned for any abnormalities or specific cells, often still extremely small and hard to spot. It is a complex and tiring task, that requires the trained eye of a costly specialist and still by default makes it prone to mistakes.
