the chance to visit the historic city of Heidelberg during my stay in Germany. I
wish I could post pictures from other cities and towns I visited, but that will
have to wait. Never the least, I must admit that I was very impressed by the
festival culture of Germany. I was staying in Mannheim and with my free time
from my internhip at BASF AG, I went to the weinfests on the weinstrasse
with my friends. I attended many concerts and tried every single type of
wine available. Very recommended. After I scan my other pictures, I will post
them under a new section as well.
View of Heidelberg
Schloss and the city
- The first picture is a view of the city of
Heidelberg from the castle (or Schloss). The city itself has a very warm
feeling to it due to its nice, old houses. Heidelberg also hosts a university
that is well known in medicine.
- The schloss, unlike many other historical
buildings, was not bombed during the second world war. However, some of it
has fallen apart due it its age. It is definately worth a visit if you go to
- The schloss and the city stand in so much
harmony together that the castle has almost become a symbol of the city.
