The Amber Road - From the Danube to the Adriatic

Götter und Magische Steine - Kultweg Bernsteinstraße

It is red and burns, is called a stone, but is really a resin. Many secrets surround this fossilised pine tree resin, which has been coveted as a gem since time immemorial. Amber. In olden days its magical charm lay primarily in its sumptuous reddish colouring and its transparency. Samples that feature what are known as «inclusions»- insects that were trapped and preserved in the resin - also give rise to much fascination. Beetles, lice and grasshoppers provide scientists with clues as to the nature of the flora and fauna of bygone ages. This film follows the road and river connections southwards. It lingers a while in those places that were important in times gone by and in individual areas which today, in a united Europe, are again returning to prominence through cross-border projects initiated by the EU.
