The Rhine River valley is showcased, focusing on sights in the valley. Cities along the Rhine include Cologne, where the magnificent Cathedral of Cologne stands, a structure missed by the bombs of the wars; and Bonn, the seat of government and the birthplace of Ludwig van Beethoven. Another composer associated with the Rhine is Richard Wagner who based many of his compositions on lores of the valley. A chief industry in the valley is wine making, vineyards dotted among the agricultural lands of the valley. And the river itself serves the functional purpose as a transportation route both for pleasure and for shipping. Written by
The commentator indicates that the Rhine reaches the sea through an estuary. Actually the Rhine has a delta but no estuary. See more »
This is the ancient valley of the Rhine. One of the world's most vital centers of civilization - where European history has evolved through centuries of warfare and strife - and where art, literature, and viticulture have been nurtured and developed for more than 2,000 years.

Cologne, Germany is the stop in this entry of James A. FitzPatrick's TravelTalks series from MGM. The series hit Germany several times throughout the years but this one here takes a stronger look at Cologne (as well as smaller views of Bonn and Koblenz). The various sites we get to visit include the birthplace of the legend Beethoven, the Cathedral and of course the Rhine River. If you've seen anything from this series then you know what to expect here. Overall this is another good entry in the long-running series, which of course benefits from the use of Technicolor. This added bonus isn't thought of as much today and I'm sure it wasn't too hot in 1953 but these shorts still served a nice purpose for people.
