CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – Bavaria has been called “Germany’s Heaven.” Filmmakers Fran and Brooke Reidelberger call it a photographer’s dream. Their film, “The Best of Bavaria,” will be shown as part of the Wilson College World Travel Film and Ethnic Dinner Series on Tuesday, Nov. 15. The evening includes a buffet dinner of dishes representative of the Bavarian region of Germany at 6 p.m. in Laird Hall, followed by the film with commentary by Fran Reidelberger at 7 p.m. in Thomson Hall’s Alumnae Chapel.
Located in the southeastern part of Germany, Bavaria is one of the oldest states of Europe and its history and beauty have made it one of the world’s top tourist destinations. In “The Best of Bavaria,” the Reidelbergers travel from the flatlands of Franconia to Alpine peaks, mixing old and new, ancient and modern, mountains and forests, cities and towns, people and things, the mundane and the magnificent, to create an entertaining and enlightening presentation.
The Reidelbergers have filmed and produced more than 15 travel/adventure shows and given more than 4,000 film/lecture presentations in the United States and Canada. Winner of the travelogue industry’s coveted “Speaker of the Year” award, Fran Reidelberger appears regularly on all major travel lecture platforms.
The dinner menu includes: warmer blaukrautsalat (warm red cabbage salad), kartoffenkuche (Bavarian potato pancake), bofflamot (marinated beef), gemusepichelsteiner (Bavarian vegetable stew) and karottenkuchen (carrot cake).
