Beautiful Heidelberg with the university, the shops, the old town and the amazing castle. The Christmas market starts near the Church of the Holy Spirit and you can then walk from there (or… take the funicular as I did) to go to the castle where you’ll find more stalls. And the view from the top is just incredible. Jingle bells!
Heidelberg is a city full of international students. I love going there because it is full of life and cultural events.
Here is the castle at the top of the hill.
This is the Karl-Theodor Brücke bridge, also called “Alte Brücke”.
I found a few vegan places while I was shopping.
In the evening, we went to Red restaurant, a vegetarian place quite famous in the area. And I can now understand why: the restaurant is lovely decorated and the meals are very tasty.
I have to say, this reminded me a lot of Tibits, the veggie restaurant in London. Same principle: you go to the buffet and you pay per weight. All vegan items are clearly marked by the flower logo – and the choice is very good. I really love this restaurant and I hope to come back on a very regular basis 🙂
