Heidelberg, Baden-Wurttemberg (1) – Heidelberg Castle (Day Two)
Located in the Alstadt neighborhood of Heidelberg beside Neckar River, Schloss Heidelberg rests high up in the north flank of Konigstuhl hill.
This 16th-century castle sits in ruins due to the War of the Grand Alliance (17th Century) and two devastating lightning strikes.
