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 been for my mom, who stayed here on a similar backpacking trip some 30 years earlier, I might never have visited. Luckily I did because not only is the surrounding countryside of rolling hills and fields picturesque, the old city is quaint and the famous Heidelberg Castle offers spectacular views of the valley and river. After a steep climb up the hillside you are at the ruins of Heidelberg Schloss, where you can spend a whole day in the labyrinth of what remains of the castle.
Starting with two international trips in college, traveling has now become a must in Somer’s life. Her newest endeavor is to combine her love of exploring the world and art as a professional photographer. Check out her photos at Postcards From Somer.
