We walked across the bridge and I reminisced about some beautiful photos I took from there while an intoxicated GI in 1972. Beautiful views of the Heidelberg Castle.

We took an evening stroll after dinner and it was a lovely place during sunset with the castle on the background. Take lots of photos!
