Vosskamp family takes a summer holiday near Offenburg

Film | Accession Number: 2009.358.1 | RG Number: RG-60.1300 | Film ID: 2906

The Vosskamp family plays outside on a summer holiday. A man pushes a woman and child on a tree swing; others swim. Children dig in a sandbox. Three of the family members (Johannes's brother in Lederhoesen?) go hiking in the hills. They come across an old lady with whom they stop and chat. Waterfalls. The children climb up a tower lookout, their father Johannes Vosskamp joins them. The family visits old stone ruins, picks berries, and breaks for lunch. They then walk about town, observe the rail station at Offenburg, go to a swimming pool, and play in the sandbox some more. 01:09:35 Quick blurry repeat of the children climbing a staircase to an outlook point.
