Curiosities & Oddities Germany Normal Travels

Beautiful Heidelberg


Dear Reader,

a long time ago I was visiting friends in this lovely, mysterious and curious town in Germany, no far from Mannheim. Heidelberg, dear Reader, where allegedly a dragon crashed and smashed an old castle.

Heidelberg is also home to the oldest German university, the Heidelberg’s Ruprecht-Karls-Universität, founded in 1386.

Many loved this town, even Mark Twain  loved it so mich that he moved here just to use its obspiration.

And is home to a hidden amphitheatre. Built by the Naxi party in 1935, it was used by the during WWII for rallies and solstice festivals. It is now preserved as a monument, but it is still used for many festivals and cultural events throughout the year.
