Germany  1: Captivating Villages (cc)

This exciting program begins with a picture-book cruise down the Rhine River, whose flowing history dates back to Roman times with ruins, castles and vineyards. In St. Goarshausen we learn the famous legend of a siren called "Lorelei" who bewitched the hearts of the sailors on the Rhine. In the Black Forest we visit Freiburg, learn the history of cuckoo clocks, enjoy hiking and seeing waterfalls, as well as the romantic Wehrle Hotel in Schwarzwald; then in Mittenwald we discover why people come here from all around the world to learn violin making. Next we see one of Mad King Ludwig II's fairy-tale palaces, the magnificent Linderhof Palace. Lastly, we explore the Bavarian village of Oberammergau, where since 1634 residents have put on the "Tragedy of the Passion," Europe's most famous passion play. 01/08DE/CC Closed-Captioned IJSCA 30 min.
