Heidelberg July 2013

The next stop on our trip was Heidelberg.  Back in Germany now, we stopped at the junction of the Rhine and Neckar Rivers.  Home to Germany's oldest University, founded in 1386 and still in operation today.  Heidelberg is home to one of Germany's most magnificent castle ruins.  It was built over a 400 year period and shows several different architectural styles.  It was spared American bombs in WWII

Below are a couple of pictures of our "Long Boat"  (I couldn't get it all in one picture) and the ship's Captain in the the control room.
