Best known for lead roles in Das Merkwürdige Verhalten Geschlechtsreifer Großstädter zur Paarungszeit alongside Christoph Waltz, or Nicht Ohne Meine Tochter, German actress Ann-Kathrin Kramer has long been a staple of German television. She spoke to Discover Germany about why she decided to move to Wuppertal, the current state of the German film industry and much, much more.

Dr. Michael Frenzel, President of the Bundesverband der Deutschen Tourismuswirtschaft BTW (Federal Association of the German Tourism Industry)
