          ... we made our way past check point Charlie, which is like a Disney land for American tourists! We checked out the Topography of terrors, loads of information about everything that has ever happened in Berlin. This is right next to the Berlin Wall so we walked along apart of it before going to treat ourselves to ice cream on finally a warm sunny day! It was time to head back to our accommodation to collect our bags and fumble our way through 4 different trains out to the bus ...

          We started with quite a large castle/palace building with a gorgeous ...

          ... I think I might possibly have a new hobby called "castle exploring", I'm making it a thing. We also walked through the town, went to the Old Bridge, and being as though we were in the city of the oldest university in Germany we decided to check it out. Also may I add that the University of Heidelberg is the third oldest university in the WORLD. Founded in the 13th century. Nuts, right? So to sum it up Heidelberg is amazing :)
