Personal Memories and Impressions Tips (14)

The most striking Baroque...

Favorite thing The most striking Baroque building in Heidelberg is the Alte Brücke, reached from the Marktplatz down Steingasse; dating from the 1780s, it was blown up in the last war, but has been painstakingly rebuilt.

Fondest memory My fondest memory from my visit to Heidelberg had to have been my decision to walk to the youth hostel from the station. Now, it was 11:00AM, and I set off with my pack and bag, thinking it couldn't be more than a 10 minute walk. Well, I was wrong! After getting lost a few times, I realized that it was alread 12:00 by the time I found the place, and when I did, it was closed, so I had to walk all the way back to the city! Aghh!!! But when I came back, the sun had come out and was lighting up the bridge and castle perfectly, so I walked down to the river's edge and took in the panorama. How nice.

Moods

Favorite thing Be transported into the European melodic & classical mood... a renaissance church, an abandoned castle & a song to remember by.
A feel, a memory & a love to last your whole life...
