Heidelberg (Germany) Travel Directory

Heidelberg (Germany) Travel Directory

Approximately 150.000 live in this beautiful city which has escaped the heavy bombardments during World War II.

Heidelberg used to an important religious center, it was also the place where Protestants and Catholics clashed many hundreds of years ago. The fortress bears the scars of armed conflict. One of the bastions, which was used to deposit explosives is partly destroyed due to a massive explosion.

The fortress of Heidelberg holds 2 interesting attractions: the World's biggest barrel (Heidelberg Tun, built in 1595) is here, so is a second one, which is smaller, yet still impressive in size. They are so huge that you can actually climb on top of one of them. Its volume is so large that you could live inside of it! The big barrel can hold 220.000 litres or 58.100 US gallons in it! During conflict, those who had taken refuge in the fort had an enormous quantity of wine kept in the barrels.

The city itself has friendly old streets, old bridges that make you feel like you took a trip back into the past...
