Heidelberg

Although we have been docked in Germany for the past couple of days, today was our first introduction to German culture when we visited the old city of Heidelberg. IMG_9232IMG_9537We started off the day by touring the ruins of the Heidelberg castle which is a defining Renaissance structure nestled in the Königstuhl hillside overlooking the city.

Mixed in with the sauerkraut was caramelized onions, spec, and mashed potatos, it was extremely tasty!IMG_9568 IMG_9574 IMG_9577
