  • Today we came to this lovely little town to find our friend hospitalized here. While we waited for the visiting hours we took a ride to this beautiful town is a place in the countryside that gives a sense of pace.si along the river Neckar, this town famous as one of the oldest German University in fact is surprising the multitude of College guys ke ci sono.la headquarters is located along Hauptstrabe ke is a main street of the historic center and is one of the longest pedestrian and commercial areas in Europe. Along the town hall can be seen in the square Markplatz Hauptstrabe Rathaus, and the main church Heiliggeistkirche. (We saw it all from the street). Anyway we Feast your eyes with all the little shops and various bars and restaurants. On the other side of the old town we saw Karlstor which is a monument storico.ci have also spoken to the North of the Neckar River there is a scenic trail that has a beautiful view over the old town and the Castle, and on the South by taking the cable car from the village centre, you can reach the castle is the highest peak of the mountain Königstuhl. Today we were here to visit but we must absolutely return in spring to fully enjoy everything.
