This day actually had a choice of outings, as well: an excursion to Heidelberg or a city tour of Speyer.  For us, this wasn’t even a choice.  Heidelberg is so unbelievably beautiful and quaint with its old town shopping district, and then you add on the castle looming above it all and there’s just no comparison.  It’s an incredibly neat place to be; we just wish we had more time there.
These three pictures are an area of the castle ruins, then looking out from one of the watchtowers onto the town below, and then looking up from the town through Christmas decorations to the castle looming above.
