Cologne (AP) - Actor Joachim Hermann Luger (76) found fun doing DIY during the Corona period. «I work, repair and drill. I think it's nice to do things that you can touch afterwards, ”said the former“ Hans Beimer ”actor from the“ Lindenstrasse ”of the German Press Agency in Cologne.

"For example, I built a huge raised bed with my son as a surprise for my wife - it turned out really well."

He also repainted his garden house in Bochum: "It now looks like a small house in Sweden," said Luger. "What I still dodge is cleaning up the attic and basement."

For the summer vacation, he and his wife had actually considered traveling to New York on the Queen Mary 2 cruise ship. "Fortunately, we hadn't booked yet." Instead, they wanted to go on vacation to their second home in Berlin.
