RARE NAZI RHINE RIVER CRUISES BROCHURE IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE
This is a original very colorful brochure printed by the Tourist Office of the Rheinland promoting Rhine River cruises to English speaking tourists of Nazi Germany. The brochure measures 4 x 8-3/8 inches and unfolds to 8-3/8 x 11-7/8 inches. The 22 interior panels are full of campy, very colorful illustrations of the Rhine River, food, wine castles along the river (including Die Godesburg with a swastika flag - the historic castle at Bad Godesberg where Hitler met Neville Chamberlain to discuss the Sudetenland crisis in 1938).
The brochure contains schedules, timetables and prices for river cruises by the Cologne-Duesseldorf Rhine Steamship Company between 15 April and 23 October 1938, up and down the Rhein. There is information about their cruise ships (the size, weight, speed, etc. of their famous 'floating hotels"), optional sightseeing excursions, menus and wine lists, and even lyrics from the Nibelungenlied about dragon-slayer Siegfried!
The colorful map has a bird's eye view of the Rhine River through Germany starting at Düsseldorf in the north, to Cologne, Bonn, Königswinter, Koblenz, Bacharach, Rüdesheim, Wiesbaden, Worms, Ludwigshafen, Mannheim to Karlsruhe in the south.
The town of Remagen is clearly depicted with the Erpeler Ley defensive positions on the far side, and of course the sculpture of the famous Lorelei legend near St. Goar is on this map as well!
Very rare and in very good used condition.
