Magic in Heidelberg

Magic in Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany (B)

Heidelberg feels like a romantic fairytale. Up on the hill stands the castle, now in ruins but still as magnificent as it must have been back in the day. Nestled below in the valley you can see church steeples, market squares and houses with peaked roofs and wooden window shutters. Across the other side of the river, daffodils and tulips are just beginning to bloom and a few trees show hopeful buds of pink blossom. Birds chirp merrily in the sunshine and the city sparkles like magic. A sunny weekend offers plenty of opportunities for exploring outdoors.

From the Hauptbahnhof, you can walk directly down to the river, cross over and enjoy the footpath all the way along to the old bridge. You may come across different varieties of geese, some in large quantities, but don’t let that put you off! These ones didn’t seem to chase people unless they had food!

Take your time wandering over this old stone bridge and soaking in the picturesque views of the castle and surrounding houses. From here, you will be able to walk directly into the cobbled streets of the Old Town and buy yourself a post card of the view you have just seen! ......
