A gorgeous day in Heidelberg, Germany (127 photos)

A few weeks ago I traveled to Germany for work. I was able to head out a day early to tour Heidelberg on my own before taking the train down to Stuttgart for work. I was incredibly lucky with the weather… nothing but sunshine and above normal temperatures for my entire stay in Germany. Below are my photos from Heidelberg. I arrived just after sunrise on Sunday morning, so you’ll see a progression from quite sleepy streets to a town center filled with pedestrians. The grass was green, the flowers were blooming, the trees were sprouting their leaves, and the sun was shining. It’s a fantastic college town and I couldn’t be happier I selected this city to visit for my one free day from work!

I’ll post my photos from Stuttgart (and nearby Sindelfingen) sometime in the next week or two.

I don't know why the photos aren't showing up. They work fine on SkyscraperPage and UrbanOhio, but for some reason don't show up here. I used the same exact "code" as on those other sites. I thought maybe the img tags here were case sensitive, so I even went through and changed all of my [img] and [/img] tags to [IMG] and [/IMG] and it's still not working. Yet the photos are visible on SSP. I've posted photos here in the past and never had this problem. Not sure what to do, so here's a link to SSP where the photos are working properly: http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread.php?t=190260

indeed, this is one charming and lovely city.
I'm lucky I'd seen this city once and I feel in love with her.
thanks for this extensive photo collection mate.

It's always a pleasure to take a look at threads about German cities. A thread about Heidelberg wouldn't be an exception, after all, the city is beautiful, has a really nice architecture and also, apparently, a pleasant atmosphere.

Some relatives of mine lived in Heidelberg for a while and it seems that they had good taste in choosing a city to spend a time. =P

Thanks for sharing the pics!

A delightful city. It is easy to imagine living here. I love the closeness of the hills and forests to the city. Very human scale and healthy.

On my to visit list
