Duluth had a special visitor over the weekend.
Heiko Obermoeller was in town with Discover America, making a video to promote Duluth to German tourists. He and his crew made many stops, including Spirit Mountain, where Obermoeller rode the alpine slide three times in a row.
Obermoeller said the video is important because a lot of people have a limited view of America, causing them to miss out on places like the Midwest.
"(People think) America is the East Coast and the West Coast, so a lot of places in between get a lot of attention through these videos, which is great because there are a lot of great places to see," he said. "You know, for me, it's just fun because I get to travel across the States and see many different nice places, and get to meet a lot of incredible people."
