We have come by bus to Heidelberg, a city long famous as a center of learning (Heidelberg University was founded in 1386). The fall foliage is spectacular in the hills along the Neckar River. Today is both cold and rainy, so we grab our umbrellas and head for the Heidelberger Bergbahn (Heidelberg Mountain Railway), a funicular that will take us to the famous Heidelberg Castle overlooking the city. Let's go!
