Heidelberg: The Charm of an Old Town!

Heidelberg, one of German’s popular tourist destinations, is such a treat for photographers. The main station of Heidelberg is packed with tourists during weekends. Most of them came just for the picturesque “Old Town”. Fortunate me, I finally managed to visit Heidelberg on a beautiful beaming autumn.

There are lots of trains connecting from Frankfurt to Heidelberg, in just an hour’s ride. Heidelberg is considerably worth visiting for a day trip or two. From the main train station (Hauptbahnhof), bus #32 and #33 connect to “Old Town” in 15 minutes. Located in Neckar river valley, hiking is unavoidable. Wearing sports shoes sure helps!

Here are some of spots that delighted my trip:

• Scheffelterrasse – The Garden next to the Schloss (castle)
