Heidelberg, Germany

Heidelberg viewed from the castle
On Tuesday we arrived in Heidelberg, Germany, which has a baroque old town and a free and famous university.  We toured the castle which overlooks the town.  It was abandoned over 300 years ago. The castle is not totally restored as it takes some money to keep these castles up and operating.  Stage productions take place in the courtyard. The castle boasts the world's largest wine barrel that could hold 50,000 gallons of wine.

After the castle tour we were on our own to walk around town. We celebrated John's birthday there.
