While I haven’t made it to Heidelberg, Germany yet, these lovely photos by Somer of Postcard from Somer certainly make a compelling case for it: En route from Amsterdam to Switzerland during a backpacking trip around Europe, I stopped in the charming city of Heidelberg, Germany; a would-be overlooked destination to me had it not […]
