I hiked this "mountain" every few days. Great trails through forest. Lights of people walking dogs. Some trails are paved, others are dirt. Can get muddy wheel it rains.

This gate is an icon in the heart of old Heidelberg. Though the city was declared “open” and was thus not bombed in World War II, the Germans destroyed in when retreating in 1944. All has been rebuilt. The gate is a photographic favorite. Walking...More

A good mix of a historical German town. With modern conveniences. It is a very walkable town with a wide variety of shops and restaurants.
