I was in Karlsruhe to experience the area's magnificent public transport system and the room I was allocated gave me a birds eye view of the tramway junction at Europaplatz. It couldn't have been better. The hotel was excellent. Breakfast was included. The hotel is a little way from the main station (Karlsruhe Hbf) but trams pass by. It's a short taxi ride and also within walking distance if you have the time. The hotel is also a little distance from the main shopping area but once again a short tram ride or a pleasant walk.

Because it's winter, a lot of the animals were moved inside from their outdoor enclosures. We got to see more animals than I expected and I was surprised ...
... 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 ...
... Boat tour and wasted a lot of time waiting in queues for tickets. It would have been better to avoid the Tourist Office and go straight to the canal boat for the one hour tour. We eventually got on the boat and had an amazing trip around the cute canals of Amsterdam. Really worth it once we got going. Once we finished we decided to get some lunch. It wasn't too hard to find some food and drinks and there are McDonalds in Amsterdam. ...
