Picking the Perfect Day Trip from Frankfurt or Stuttgart – Travel to Heidelberg, Germany
So, before I started work, I decided to be a tourist and visit one of the more popular tourist attraction towns of Heidelberg, Germany. Heidelberg is located 20 minutes southeast of Mannheim by tram. It is a very popular town to live in by foreigners because there is a fantastic international school present, it’s very picturesque, and the many US military bases around the town (since the early 1950s). The history of the town goes back to as early as the 5th century with the ‘Altstadt’ or ‘Old City’ section with its castle ruins overlooking the town. The castle started construction in the 13th century, was destroyed in the 17th century, and preserved during the 19th century to today. Heidelberg is situated on the banks of the Neckar River, which is a main tributary to the Rhine River.
The following are pictures taken during my daytrip as a tourist:
That ends this picture blog of my tour of Heidelberg. If you are connected to me through Facebook, I have more pictures and descriptions posted there. I would highly recommend a visit to Heidelberg if visiting this area of Germany. Until later, auf Wiedersehen
