    OPTIONAL EXCURSIONS


    Heidelberg, Germany
    Heidelberg

    We’ll leave from Mannheim by coach and travel to Heidelberg. We begin with a visit to Heidelberg Castle, where you’ll be able to see the Renaissance ruins and parts of its restoration. The castle has a history that is almost as old as the city itself. From either the Great Terrace or the gardens, enjoy an amazing view over Heidelberg, the Neckar River, and the valley. Don’t miss seeing the Heidelberg Tun. Built in 1751 by Prince Elector Karl Theodor, it housed the wine paid as taxes by the wine growers in the region. Legend has it that the permanently intoxicated court jester who guarded the cask, Perkeo, died after mistakenly drinking a simple glass of water. You can also enjoy a stroll through the castle gardens, once considered a masterpiece of their time. Built upon several terraces, they were made up of many flower beds, mazes, sculptures, heated greenhouse with orange trees, large ponds, waterfalls, and a man-made grotto. We’ll then head for the Neckarmunzplatz, on the banks of the Necker River, and continue with a guided tour of the old city. We’ll pass by the Church of the Holy Spirit, the most famous church in Heidelberg, whose steeple dominates the town. And then you will have some free time to wander through the streets and shops before returning to the coach for the journey back to the ship.
