  1. Thanks for this lovely post. I visited Heidelberg several years ago and even though it was on a Sunday and many things were closed, it was a beautiful city. We wandered around the ruins of the castle and took in the views of the river. I would love to go back.

  2. Since I live in Germany, I have been to Heidelberg many times. But, I still like to go again. It is a place where I can see many young people, tourists, old parts and the new part as well. Specially, I like the autumn scene with colourful leaves. And the riverside walk is always pleasant.

  3. Heidelberg seems to be such a pretty town, Yukti. The Old Town and the Old Bridge over the Nectar river both are so picturesque. This is surely something I do not want to miss while designing my Germany itinerary.

  4. I can’t totally sew why Hiedelburg inspired so many poets and artists on romanticism – what a beautiful looking place! I’ve never visited this area of Germany before, but definitely going to add it to the list after reading your post! X

  5. I didn’t know for it, it’s so cute and I would like to visit it. The pictures are so stunning, I have been to Frankfurt several times, next time I need to check this one 🙂

  6. We have been to Frankfurt the first part of this year and we had a very great time!
    There are so many beautiful and characteristic buildings that it’s impossible to not do lots of photos ahah
