Autumn is a beautiful time of year to visit Heidelberg, Germany.
The city is split by the Neckar river with leafy rounded hills standing guard on each side of the river. Daytime temperatures in the fall are still comfortable, even with a slight chill setting in at night. The changing colours of the deciduous trees on the hills — Heiligenberg on the north side and Königstuhl on the south — complement the red-roofed houses and buildings in town, providing extra ‘warmth’ to the captivating location.
I called this town my ‘home’ between 2001 and 2003. To this day, I view Heidelberg as an “adopted” hometown in Germany.
I made the following pictures below on the Theodor-Heuss-Brücke (THB) and on the Alte Brücke (AB).
Heidelberg can be reached from Mannheim in about 15 to 20 minutes with S-Bahn or Deutsche Bahn regional trains, from Frankfurt am Main in about 50 to 90 minutes with Deutsche Bahn InterCity or regional trains, and from Stuttgart in about 40 minutes with Deutsche Bahn EuroCity or InterCity trains.
I made the photos above on 29 Nov 2008 and 25 Nov 2014. This post is published on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-zP.
