This morning we walked around the town of Mannheim and saw the beautiful water tower and a castle (the largest in Europe), now converted into a university.
In the afternoon we drove about 15 km to the town of Heidelberg to see the mountain castle.
Down below you could see the popular tourist town of Heidelberg. The river Nicker flows toward Mannheim and joins the river Rhein.
For the evening adventure we rode bikes to an Italian restaurant (bikes in the background). We also visited a couple of donkeys on the way back from dinner.
Wow great pictures. Reminds of the days I spent in eastern holland and western Germany. Look forward to more.
Wow, wow, wow!! A castle turned into a university? How amazing is that? I would be so in awe to attend that university! 🙂 The picture of the mountain castle with the stairs in it shows how grand the castle is. The stairs put the whole size into perspective.
