Our long weekend ended in Heidelberg which is one of our favorite cities so far. After finding our hotel and parking about a half mile away, we stopped for lunch at Cafe Romantic. As it turns out, it wasn't very romantic at all and left disappointed, but we moved on to the bridge and then the castle. We found the funicular train which took us to the caste and explored the castle ...
... seen a proper one!
I have to say that my favourite animals are the birds of prey and the Riesenseeadler or Steller's Sea Eagle was amazing. The flamingos were also good to see as well as the kangaroos. It's always funny to think that animals from Australia are somehow exotic like a toucan, but the Germans love them! Germans have weird names for animals sometimes like:
1. Der Waschbär - raccoon (wash bear)
2. Raubtiere - ...
... town center has some really nice old buildings, however, they need to be taken care of.
Also most shops are especially made for tourists, esp. for Asian ones. Asian employees work in the shops and there are Asian letters on the windows. That at least to me is a definite turn off as after all it is Heidelberg, a town famous for its history, culture and university. I guess though that everything changes over time.
The Christmas markets ...
We slept in late and had a long breakfast with Conny. She has made us feel so comfortable and has planned out our travel for us each night! We did a little workout in Rudy's fabulous gym and then left for Karlsruhe. We went straight to the palace and found out that at 2pm they swum and palace tower were free to enter (usually 6 euros each). We left for one hour and roamed ...
... s shoes were killing her.
It was also time for lunch so we headed to Burger King. Finding fast food restaurants in Germany isn't easy unless you are in downtown or on the side of the Autobahn and I think that is a good thing. At the moment we are only eating junk food once a month or less. But then again for 7€, a meal isn't cheap. You can normally order a schnitzel in a restaurant for under 10€.
Steffie was keen to go shopping ...
