Heidelberg (Baroque style on old Gothic layout)

Here are some picture I took in May 2008 of my hometown, Heidelberg:









































Sorry for the lower quality...but my camera is no high-tech!

One of the most beautiful towns in Germany! No doubt about that! I prefer street level pics, but, even in aerial ones, Heidelberg looks great! Btw, some relatives of mine lived there! Thanks for sharing!

I've visited quite a few cities and towns in Germany but not Heidelberg. Beautiful country and Heidelberg looks like an interesting town to visit someday.

was there last year. The Baroque styled castle is impressive but the town's really small. A day trip would suffice.

Absolutely fantastic pictures, great location, fantastic architecture and a surprisingly dense and urban centre for a reasonably small place.

Thanks for the nice comments!
Perhaps I should add that this is just the "Old Town" of Heidelberg.
Heidelberg has an area of 108,8 km▓ (145.000 inhabitants) and the "Old Town" itself has just 13,8 km▓ (10.000 inhabitants).
