This is an excellent 8-3/8 x 11-3/4 inch, 164 page photo filled hard cover book on that part of Bavaria that lies south of the Danube river. It covers the landscape and the people, art and culture, destinations, special cities, sports and the joy of life found there. Reiseland Südbayern was written by Paul Wolfrum, published by Verlag Knorr & Hirth and contains 75 big, clear black & white photos and four color prints in a traditional Bavarian red and white checkerboard cover.
The book also contains a map of the entire area from Switzerland to Ulm, to Regensburg, Passau and Berchtesgaden along the front of the Alps. Note that the map (shown at the top of this web page) includes Dachau, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bad Tölz, Munich and Berchtesgaden.
The introduction was written by the Oberbürgermeister of the Capital of the Nazi Movement (Munich) Karl Fiehler. There is an important section of the book devoted to the buildings of the Third Reich
and the Imprint left on the area by the Nazi Party, including Adolf Hitler's alpine home Der Berghof
above Berchtesgaden, the Feldherrnhalle
and House of German Art
in Munich, the Königsplatz with its Führerbau
and Honor Temples for the martyrs of the Nazi Movement.
Other sections are devoted to mining and mining towns, the funny and happy people that live in Bavaria, the cities and towns in the area, the most important churches and art, the beautiful landscape, the incredible high mountains, the waterways, etc.
This second edition of Reiseland Südbayern has 34 pages of tourist related advertising in the back that earlier editions did not have: Bavarian health and ski resorts, museums, gardens and zoos, even the famous Trabrennbahn (horse racetrack) at München-Daglfing.
All in all it is beautifully produced book on the area that Hitler adopted as his home and the home of his Nazi Movement when he was discharged from the German army and service in the Bavarian List Regiment at the end of World War I. Fundamental for anyone interested in any of these subjects.
