2009 NR

Backed by a soundtrack featuring the works of Max Bruch and Carl Maria von Weber -- two of Germany's greatest composers -- this edition of the series leads viewers on a tour of some of Bavaria's most historic sites. Highlights include an excursion through the Bavarian Forest for a look at the fairy tale-like Prunn Castle, the storied Marienberg Fortress, and the Weikersheim Castle, once home of the princely family Hohenlohe.
