This Traveltalks look at southern Germany begins in Berchtesgaden, which served as a retreat for Adolf Hitler during World War II. After a boat ride on the Königssee and a look at the Neuschwannstein castle, we visit the village of Mittenwald, renowned for making violins, and then go to Oberammergau, where the famous Passion play is performed by village residents every ten years. The last stop is a village on the shore of the Tegernsee, where we see traditional Bavarian dances performed. Written by David Glagovsky <dglagovsky@prodigy.net>

Beautiful Bavaria (1953)

*** (out of 4)

Good entry in James A. FitzPatrick's TravelTalks series takes us on a tour through Germany years after WWII. We start off in Berchtesgaden and learn that this was a retreat spot for Adolf Hitler all through the war. Hitler is brought up a couple times in this short and it seems the narrator wants people to know that the Germany of today is much different than when Hitler was in charge. We also visit Oberammergau and learn about the Passion Play that is held every ten years and in Mittenwald we learn about their violin making. Overall, this here is certainly one of the best looking shorts I've seen from this series because the visuals are just so striking and the land so beautiful that you can't help but be impressed. There's talk about American soldiers wanting to be stationed there after the war and it's easy to see why with the beautiful waters and terrific mountains. As usual, the Technicolor really brings this film to life and perfectly shows off the mountains and valleys. Even if you're not a fan of the series this one here is just so good looking that I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
