Unknown half of Heidelberg

This entire mountain (hill) is great. So much cultural history here, not to mention great terrain for hiking and trail running. This place is one of my favorite in Heidelberg.

Nice walk across the bridge into Heidelberg under the double tower entryway. We were there before Christmas walking around, enjoying the markets and photos at night. Try the restaurants facing the water.

next to this there is a monkey sculpture, stop there for a candid pict, check out the levels of water marked over the years on the bridge's column. Cross and go for a walk, nove view of the castle from here.

Yes the towers are lovely and make for a great photo op, but the real attraction is going out to the middle of the bridge and looking at both halves of the city, just beautiful. When we visited there was a couple taking their wedding photos on the bridge and I can understand why.

Such a beautiful town. We didn't venture on this side of town, but had great views of it from the castle and bridge. Very picturesque.

With nice views of the Nekar River and H. castle, this ancient bridge also offers a funny bronze monkey statue that you can put your head into for photos. Just three blocks from the town center.

I have many photos of this fantastic entrance into the city. I have been to the city twice in eight years and still find everything wonderful.

Worth walking to see the stone bridge that crossing the Neckar River. It connects the Old City with the eastern part of the Neuenheim district of the city on the opposite bank. One of the best-known landmarks and tourist destinations is usually bustling with groups taking photos.

This is on the old bridge and hard not to miss. This was the scene ofr our new years eve celebration and it was packed with people celebrating with their foreworks in an ad hoc manner. Not for thr feint hearted but the Heiligenberg is beautifully set and a photo stop for sure...
