A fascinating story, with excellent photography, telling the colorful lifestyle today in a medieval village near the Bavarian Alps
The year 1980, when this production was filmed, found Rothenburg's great festivals fresh and at their very peak. Unfortunately, today the dramatic increase of tourism and traffic has diminished the enjoyment of the festivals and Rothenburg. Travel back with us to 1980 again in this award-winning DVD --- when the times were simpler, the Romantic Road less traveled, and when beautiful Rothenburg bloomed.
Once you step inside the ancient, fortified city walls of medieval Rothenburg, Germany, the 20th Century melts away. Cobblestone streets guide the visitor through a fairy tale city which looks today as it did 1,000 years ago. The adventure continues as we join the town’s people in their traditional customs and festivals in this American Film Festival Blue Ribbon Award (First Place) winner All's Well In Rothenburg.
