I finally went to Heidelberg on Friday! Since I’m travelling with the other exchange students this weekend, I’m scheduling a few blog posts with photos from my Heidelberg trip. Today’s pictures are of the castle (Schloss).
This is a view of the courtyard inside the Schloss. I was impressed with the intricate architecture on these buildings–way more complex and intricate than the stereotypical stone-block castle.
I got to walk around a bit inside the castle. One of the places I went was the wine cellar. It had giant wine barrels and the statue of the dude shown above. I think that statue is staring at the gargantuan wine barrel behind me and wondering how to open it.
The castle is, in part, a ruin, so it’s no surprise that some parts are, well, ruined. This tower was damaged in such a way as to give a good look inside. And the crumbling castle all covered in moss and vines is pretty, even long after the castle’s heyday as a place to live.
Come back tomorrow for views of the city from the castle!
