First Air Date: January 31, 1990
|First Aired on||:||1990|
|Seasons/Episodes||:||4 episodes in 1 Seasons|
The relationship between Germans and Austrians is illuminated in a satirical and tragicomic way. The main characters of the series are the members of the German Family Sattmann, who have been spending their holidays for years in the fictional village of Lahnenberg in the Tyrolean Zillertal. The story begins with real excerpts from the TV show "Let's Go!" Asked by Fuchsberger, Austrian candidates explain that the Piefkes are the imaginary Germans who threw their marks around them and believed that something was better. The outrage among German tourists is great, especially among the Berlin business family Sattmann. The Tyroleans are doing everything they can to contain the threat of a stornowelle of German tourists (which in reality also existed).
