Heidelberg is the prettiest European city you’ve never been to. It’s a somewhat hidden gem that you need to add to your list. I can’t believe that I call Heidelberg home. I could be biased, but it’s one of the prettiest cities I’ve ever seen. Rolling mountains, with a sandstone castle overlooking the Neckar river. The city is situated below the mountains and flanks the river, with shops, pretty architecture, and cafes.
Here’s a guide to everything to see and do in Heidelberg, Germany.

Isn’t this bridge just lovely? It’s one of my favorite sites.
But it’s more that just a beautiful structure. Inside, you’ll find a Apotheke museum, where you’ll see how they used to practice medicine. You’ll also find gardens, and my favorite part, a 220,000 liter wine barrel.
