It is no secret that Heidelberg is a jewel among German travel destinations. Heidelberg is located in the Neckar river valley right where the dark Odenwald (Odin's Forest) opens up towards the plains of the Rhine valley. Heidelberg is home to the oldest university in Germany (est. 1386).
Some places to see:
-The Altstadt (historical city center)and Hauptstrasse (main street)
-The Thingstatte on top of Heiligenberg (an open-air theatre built by the Nazi regime in 1934 to host propaganda events)
-The Heiliggeistkirche church is only one of many large and small churches, but definitely the one with the most interesting history.
