Haven't have wifi for a day or so. Checking in now. We are loving this trip! Meeting a lot of amazing people, too! Trip highlights:
Toured the biggie castles of King Ludwig. Fairytales! Met some new friends from Pittsburg. Lots of walking! Lots and lots and lots of walking. And stairs; they're everywhere! The castles were …
... were able to view Zell from above and really appreciate how lovely and picturesque the whole valley is. It's hard to comprehend that the history of this area can be traced back to 2000BCE and parts of the town walls erected in 1229 can still be seen!. Zeller Schwarze Katz is a world famous wine and a monument in the shape of a black cat was made as a fountain and is located in the town square. Tomorrow we are planning a boat trip.
... main strasse of the town. The choice of eating out is many and varied and with the long day-light hours (lights out 9 pm) we will be trying a few in the evenings mainly. Grape vines predominate the landscape and are mainly grown on the sides of hills requiring steel ladders to access them. Certainly makes for hard work when harvesting!

TravelPod Member ReviewsLeonardo Hotel Heidelberg
I've had better rooms and service in a hostel. The front desk clerk was rude and not helpful. Our room still had the previous guests bathroom stuff in it (forgotten hairspray and gel), and our towels were askew. Our room was directly on the freeway and it was loud all night. Our room also smelled of smoke, even though we had smoke free. When we checked out the front desk attendant charged me more for parking than the previous attendant had told me. Overall experience was very poor.
