This morning we went to the Heidelberg Castle. It was BEAUTIFUL. This castle is located along the Neckar Valley and was originally build in 1300. It was so cool to have the opportunity to walk around and see how the kings, queens and villagers lived. Although the castle was damaged from wars, it still gave off a magical feel. My favorite part was when we got to walk through the castle’s gardens and get an remarkable view of Heidelberg.

After the castle we did a little more exploring. It started to downpour at one point of the day and we forgot to bring our umbrellas. Nonetheless, we ended up in a shoe store to do a little shopping J.
After the rain, we meet up wit the group for a dinner at an authentic German restaurant. The food was served on big platters and you could pick and choose which dishes you wanted. Of course, I got a bratwurst with lots of delicious sauerkraut and a big boot of beer. (Andy, you would have loved this meal!!).
