Dienstag: I lost my heart in Heidelberg …The next morning, I went to see Heidelberg. Lying somewhere directly on the confluence of rivers Rhine and Neckar, sits this picturesque little university town. After a while, I stood at a vantage point from where I got a sweeping view of the city's picturesque landscape—the famous Limes, or the artificial line that the Romans built across Europe to defend the Roman Empire. I then strolled through the University Square and the Marktplatz, and breezed by a popular student tavern playing jazz. I stopped to relish a lunch consisting of the quintessential local delicacy, bratwurst at an eatery called Bratwurst Glockle.
After a hearty meal, stroll through Hauptstrasse, it’s THE street there! It’s a quaint heaven for shoppers and has some amazing outlets to pick up souvenirs from. Hauptstrasse happens to be Europe’s longest car-free zone, by the way!
A lovely view atop Heidelberg Castle.
