Enjoy extreme outdoor endeavors without fear of loss of life or limb by checking out the collection of films showcased in the European Outdoor Film Tour, being screened in various German venues through late January.
Nine short films and documentaries complete the program, which includes some 120 minutes of film viewing, punctuated by a half hour break, host commentary and a sweepstakes.
Activities to enjoy vicariously include whitewater kayaking in the jungles of Mexico, tackling mountain summits by bike in Kyrgyzstan, surviving the winter in a homemade hut above the Polar Circle, off-width climbing in Utah, and other hair-raising pursuits.
Tickets to the shows cost 14 euros and tend to sell out very quickly. A sporting goods store in each locality serves as the ticket seller; purchase them well in advance to avoid disappointment.
Venues hosting the tour near U.S. military communities include:
• Nuremberg, Meistersingerhalle, Nov. 25, 8 p.m.
• Bamberg, Konzerthalle, Nov. 30, 5 and 8:30 p.m.
• Regensburg, University-Audimax, Dec. 6, 5 and 8:30 p.m.
• Mannheim, Capitol, Dec. 18, 8 p.m.
