    Take a stroll down Main street, passed a ton of shops, maybe you'll pick up a pastry at one of the many bakeries, or what about a ever popular laugenbrezel! Then go into the bubble-butted church that sits in the center of the town square. It's the finest of the surviving buildings in the Altstadt. All of which are grouped on Marktplatz, in the middle of which is the red sandstone Heiliggeistkirche (mentioned above), whose domed tower is one of the city's most prominent landmarks. There are tiny shopping booths between its buttresses, a feature ever since the church was built. Inside, it's light, airy and uncluttered, but was not always so, as the church was built to house the mausoleum of the Palatinate Electors; only one tomb remains.

    We went up the tower of the Church of Holy Spirit when we were visiting Heidelberg. It was fun and the view was fantastic as well. From there, you can have an excellent view of the castle and the Old Bridge.

    Modern themed stained glass

    Atom bomb and Einstein's E=mc2 on stained glass

    The church isn't so ornate and the atmosphere a bit light, but it was very interesting to see important events from the 20th century depicted in the stained glass.
