Germany - Heidelberg

Heidlburg Castle









Day trip to Heidleburg

We took a ferry from Nuckargemund to Hiedleburg. It took 1 hour and we had to go through 2 locks to get there The total distance is only about 8km. Cost 9 Euro each one way.

We got off the ferry and walked up to the main street which was very busy - Saturday afternoon.



I had a weird beer - it is called a BananaWeizen. It is a Hefeweizen with a banana essence. Weird - tasted like Banana as you would expect.

They also have KirchWeizen which is cherry flavored and ColaWeizen which is cola and beer.

Other weird drinks we have seen is a White Wine and then they add Water to it. 50/50 mix - I was not keen on trying that,


Pam had a chocolate drink with ice cream.

Half-Timbered House in Neckargemünd

We are staying in a small village called Neckargemünd a few km from Heidelberg. It is a renovated 450 year old half-timbered house in Franconian style.

From the photos it looks to be squeezed between two other buildings.



We are paying 277€. (74€/night for 2 adults, 35€ for final cleaning and 10€ / Person for bed linen and towels for 3 nights.

We are hoping to be able to catch a ferry into Hiedelberg and back again.
