Can you imagine a city in the middle of Europe, surrounded by forests, alongside a river and looked over by an ancient castle? Well no, not until you visit Heidelberg. This colourful city, located along the Necker River, a tributary of the Rhine, is a site to see. It has been know for many years as one of the most romantic cities in Germany, and now I see why. Tourists flock here from all over the world to visit its gorgeous castle, ancient bridge & green parks, and they have all the reason too. This place is gorgeous!
Its population lies just over 150 000, about a quarter of this university students. Founded in 1386, Heidelberg University is Germany’s oldest and one of Europe’s most reputable universities. The old city is on one side of the river, and the new city on the other. You can reach everything by foot or bike, and when you need to access the train station there is a great tramway network that travels easily all around Heidelberg and its neighbouring city Manheim.
I visited the beautiful and very talented portrait & wedding photographer Julia, www.bohemiencolors.com , this July to explore, inspire, & to have a weekend away. She, along with her roommates in Neuheim, were so kind, welcoming and relaxed, showing me a city I am bound to return to. THANK YOU!
Below you will see images along the Necker River, at the Neckerweisen, in the Altstadt, in Neuheim, and all the beautiful architecture, red brick & colour this city has to offer. Enjoy!
