Ever since my sister visited Heidelberg a few years ago, all she has been talking about is how beautiful the city is. She actually shamed me since Alan and I didn’t take the train there when we were in Frankfurt, so when we met up with my sister and brother-in-law in Germany to go to Oktoberfest, we decided to take the train to Heidelberg and spend the day there.
Heidelberg has been dubbed a fairytale city, and now that I have been there I can see why.
Heidelberg castle sits up on the hill overlooking the city. Out of all the castles I have seen, Heidelberg castle was definitely the biggest. This place is massive, and what is more crazy is that the owner actually didn’t think he had enough space. Apparently he moved to another place while his castle was expanded. I guess he had a pretty big entourage!
The view from the castle was amazing!
Next time I am in Germany I will for sure schedule a stay in Heidelberg for a couple of days so I can explore more of the city.
