Bertolt Brecht's Favorite Recipes (#234)

Music: Stefan Remmler - You might remember hearing it on the radio back in the early 1980s: a curious and decidedly minimalist piece of music from Germany with lyrics you couldn't help but remember. "Da da da" was the work of Stefan Remmler and his legendary group Trio, and the song made them famous the world over. Fans will be pleased to know that Remmler is back with a new album that shows him staying true to his roots.

Art: Red Carpet Zone - Who wouldn't like a chance to get a little red carpet treatment? For most of us, it doesn't happen every day, but in St. Gallen in Switzerland, many people have been enjoying it for some time now. That's because the financial district of town has been transformed into a fully red carpeted zone as part of an unusual art project - so we went to have look.

Travel: The Way of St. James, Spain - The Camino de Santiago or the Way of St. James is the pilgrimage to the famous cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Spain's most northwestern tip. It's been one of the most important Christian pilgrimages since medieval times and every year thousands of young pilgrims challenge themselves with the long trek to where the apostle James is said to be buried. euromaxx went along one of four routes from southern France to find out what the pilgrims seek on their way.

Music: Szalzburg and the Magic Flute - A spiritual experience of a different kind can be had through listening to the music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - and right now there's no better place to do that than at the annual Salzburg Festival in Austria. One regular at the event is Italy 's celebrated conductor Riccardo Muti - this year he's lending his own magic to the irresistible Magic Flute.

Food: Brecht's Favorites - "First comes the grub, then the morals." Anyone who knows the works of German playwright Bertolt Brecht might remember that famous line from his 1928 work The Three-Penny Opera. Not only in his work but also in life food and drink were a recurring theme for Brecht. Now a new cookbook of his favourite recipes lends more insight into the private lives of Brecht and his wife and leading actress Helene Waigel - euromaxx reports on a culinary tribute.
