Photo Post - Heidelberg

So I remember someone asking about Heidelberg...well we just had to go there then.

I've grown very fond of this kind of jam made of berries called Heidelbeeren, and by the looks of it I thought it was a blueberry but I found out later that its actually a Huckleberry. Heidelberg is short for Heidelbeerenberg which means Huckleberry Mountain. In light of this revelation, I guess Heidelbeeren Hound doesnt have as much of a ring to it as Hanna Barbara may have wanted ;)

But anyways, Heidelberg is where Heidelberg University is, which is Germany's oldest University which was founded in 1386. The town itself was founded sometime in the 1100's.

Anyhoo, photos!

The city is riddled with these swanky fraternity houses. Man...they must have money.

Even though the streets are narrow they are chock full of cool colors and neat things to look at. This is so cliche!
