The German Federal State of Rhineland-Palatinate lies in the southwest of the Federal Republic of Germany. This DVD begins with an overview over the state with its nine natural regions: Ahr Valley, Eifel, Westerwald, Mosel-Saar, Huns- rück, the Nahe region, Palatinate with the Palatinate Forest, Middle Rhine-Lahn-Taunus and Rhenish Hesse. A detailed chapter on the eventful history of Rhineland-Palatinate makes this DVD suitable for history lessons, too. Here, the period from Roman Times up to the foundation of the federal state of Rhineland-Palatinate is summarised. Thanks to its central location in Western Europe, its proximity to other European countries, 14 public inland ports on the Rhine and the Moselle and an export quota of around 46%, Rhineland-Palatinate is also an attractive business location. At the same time, it is the “wine state” of the Federal Republic, with 65% of the entire German wine-growing area. The capital of Mainz is often referred to as a media city, houses the media companies ZDF and SWR and is an important employer in the country. Due to the modular, modified regional-studies approach, this DVD of- fers the possibility of using both comprehensive and specific teaching strategies and access modes.
