Eichendorffanlage (Eichendorff Plant), Heidelberg
Heidelberg has long been renowned for its romantic ambiance, whose Castle and Old Town, Neckar River and wooded hills provided inspiration and attracted great writers, thinkers and poets of the 19th century. Among them was the famed German poet, Joseph von Eichendorff, who studied law, philosophy and literature in Heidelberg from 1807 to 1808; a memorial to him is found within this park.
A commemorative plaque installed on the mountain side of the park carries fragment from his 1855 poem called "Robert and Guiscard":
“Stand enchanted by this fairy tale
The wanderers quiet. - Move on, who can!
That's how they saw it in dreams,
And everyone looks like his home
And the magic has never lied to anyone
Because Heidelberg was where they moved in."
