Schloss Heidelberg at Dusk

Nestled in the hills high above the old town of Heidelberg, Germany, Schloss Heidelberg (or “Heidelberg Castle” in English) is the focal point of this medieval town along the Neckar River. Ever since I moved here 18 months ago, I’ve made it a goal to go to the castle once every season. To me, the city and castle look so different throughout the year: the changing fall colors, the snowy hilltops, the new blooms of spring, and the bustling tourist activity of the summer.

I had a friend visit this past week from the USA. Even though the sky was grey and it looked like it was going to rain any minute, we trudged up the very steep (!) incline of the castle to take in the view of old town Heidelberg.

This view never disappoints! And I’ve never been up at dusk! My camera really captured all the blue, purple, and pink nighttime light reflecting off the old stone. If you’re ever in Heidelberg, Germany (which you all should have added to your bucket list), a stop at the castle is a must!
