Day trip: Heidelberg


We headed straight to the schloss! Heidelberg is lovely. Also, it has an incredible history. Two thumbs up. I am a lucky human.

It got sunny:

Mark Twain spent time in Heidelberg and wrote about this GIGANTIC wine cask in his book, A Tramp Abroad:

Beers for everyone! Literally, everyone. 

And there was a students’ prison. Yes, prison for students. That was a real thing until 1914. Mark Twain wrote a funny dialogue about it. :

  1. Lovely! Heidelberg is on my top list of places to visit in Germany! After visiting the bigger, more touristy cities in the country, it’d be nice to venture out and see other parts of it. Great post!
