@SilverSamurai: This is true! Beware of the swans!


































View over Neuenheim and Handschuhsheim to Dossenheim:








View over the Weststadt to the Main Station (behind the Main Station you can see the construction area of the Bahnstadt):



On the horizon you can see the "skyline" of Mannheim:

Germany has so much magic that´s it´s hard to even keep track of it all...
No doubt my favourite country in the whole world by far.
Heidelberg is one of all those city jewel gems.
Thanks for all these wunderschöne photos!

Here are the promised photos of Schwetzingen. I took most of the photos in the gardens of "Schwetzingen Castle".
Schwetzingen is an own city and is not a district of Heidelberg but it is situated only around 10 km (6 miles) southwest of Heidelberg and the castle was the summer residence of the Electors Palatine Karl III Philip and Charles Theodore, which had their seats at Heidelberg Castle and later at Mannheim Palace. Therefore Schwetzingen belongs to Heidelberg, kind of.
Hope you enjoy:








The region is very famous for its asparagus growing area:



There are lots of renovation works at the moment:

It's part of the Nachbarschaftsverband Heidelberg-Mannheim though, meaning it falls under Heidelberg's urban planning authority.

There is something quite magical about southern Germany. Heidelberg looks just as I've imagined it. Some charming buildings and homes.

A friend and I want to go and visit the alchemists' laboratory. Is it situated in the castle or in the university? Is it open to the public?

What is the population of Heidelberg? What are its main employments?

Heidelberg has 150,000 inhabitants and is famous for print, cement, its university (the oldest in Germany), especially for its university hospital and the German Cancer Research Center.

The university is the primary employer and together with a huge variety of R&D companies clustered around Heidelberg for colocation with the university the 4th sector employs about 60% of Heidelberg's working population. Service sector takes almost the entire rest. Industrial sector is almost non-existant, with only two larger companies (ABB Stotz and Henkel) and a few dozen smaller ones. Heidelberger Druckmaschinen and Heidelberger Zement only have their administrative headquarters in Heidelberg.
