Renting a Guitar
We will be in Heidelberg in late October 2006. My husband will not be bringing his guitar on this trip. Is there a music store where we can rent a decent quality guitar for approximately two weeks? Any resources and contact information is welcomed!
RE: Renting a Guitar
I know some music stores rent out instruments, but it's usually for kids who aren't sure yet if they want to play a particular instrument. So the rental period is at least 6 months. I don't know if you could rent a guitar for just two weeks. You can send a mail to this store, it's a really good music store in Heidelberg.http://www.musikhaus-hochstein.de/index.html

VT EXCURSION TO HEIDELBERG
Sunday June 1 2008
WooHoo! We finally got to visit Heidelberg properly, during a VT group tour led by our wonderful guide Jessica ( JessH) who grew up near this world famous city. Heidelberg is in the German province of Baden-Wurtemberg and lies on the River Neckar. It is located an hour south of Frankfurt and North of Karlsruhe.
Our excursion of Heidelberg began with a walk through the Main Street - Hauptstrasse, past the beautiful Hotel Zum Ritter. Then on to Marktplatz - site of the Rathaus and Heiliggeistkirche. We then took the Funicular up to Heidelberg Castle. Our first sight was the courtyard with Friedrichsbau and Ottheinrichbau. We visited the German Pharmacy Museum and the Wine Cellar and then on to the Balcony overlooking the city.
Had dinner in the Marktplatz at Markstube.. Then had to see the "Monkey", the Old Bridge (Alte Brucke) and the Old Bridge Gate (Bruckentor).
After a very busy day, it was time to get back on the bus to the train station and head back to Karlsruhe.
I want to take this opportunity to thank Jessica (JessH) for this great excursion. And we can't forget Bernd (Berndl) for all his help on the excursion.
You guys rock!!!
Recipe for Mulled Wine Jam (Christmas)
"Gluehwein" is the German word for Mulled Wine; a hot aromatic drink full of spices that's synonymous with the festive season.
This jam is something I make every year as it's a fantastic little gift for friends, family and colleagues. And if you have a glut of apples, plums or mixed berries this is a great way to use them. For children you can substitute the red wine for red grape juice, but to be honest after about 1 hour of boiling there is definitely no alcohol left in this concoction!
Making jam yourself may seem daunting at first but trust me: it's easy!
"Gluehweinmarmelade" (makes about 4 jars)
* 1.2kg tangy apples (or half apples / half plums)
* 600ml red wine (or red grape juice for kids)
* 200ml orange juice
* 3-4 cloves
* 1 cinnamon stick (or 1 tsp powder)
* 1 tsp ground allspice
* 2 vanilla pod, with seeds
* 900g caster sugar
* 1 lemon, juiced
* 3-4 tbsp raisins
1. Peel and core apples; then cut into cubes. (de-stone the plums)
2. Add all ingredients to a tall pot (be careful, jam tends to rise a lot whilst boiling!) and bring to the boil. Stir occasionally.
3. Put a small saucer into the freezer (it will make sense soon...)
4. Once bubbling, leave to boil vigorously for about 50min. To test whether the jam has "set", take a teaspoon full and drizzle it onto the cold saucer. If you can touch the surface after a few seconds and it doesn't run when tilting the saucer, it has set. If not, keep boiling for another minute and then test it again.
5. Once it has set, remove the cloves, vanilla pod and cinnamon stick (if using). If you like a smooth jam, you can now blend it.
6. Skim any scum/foam that has risen to the surface and fill the jam into 4 sterilized jars.
7. Close the jars and place them upside down for about 15min (this ensures that the lids create a tight vacuum). Merry Christmas!
Decorate your jam jars with hand written labels for an even more personalized touch. If you've sterilized and sealed your jars properly the jam should last for up to a year unopened. Once opened, store in the fridge.
Merry Christmas and Enjoy!

Cruise on the Neckar River
Many people are probably familiar with the numerous boat ride opportunities that exist on the Rhine River. Heidelberg's river, the Neckar, also affords an opportunity to take a relaxing boat ride if the weather is good. There are some ruins that are interesting, and at least one place upriver where you can get off of the boat and explore. Our trip lasted a few hours and provided a nice diversion from the busy city. Boats leave from the old city.
