After the end of the Second World War, several divisions of the US Army were permanently stationed in West Germany. At the time of the Cold War, there were constantly more than 200,000 US soldiers. For taking a trip into your past, this tour is just perfect for you!<br>Heidelberg is the ideal starting point for such a trip, as the majority of the US troops were stationed within a radius of just 50 miles around Heidelberg. If you go to "What To Expect" you may find more than 130 relevant sites including the names of barracks and other US facilities.<br>The name of my boutique-style chauffeur and limousine service is "a friend in heidelberg". Many guests of mine told me that this very name is the perfect choice.<br>I was not only born in the famous historical city of Heidelberg and know the area extremely well, but also lived and worked in the US and hence speak fluent English. If you wish I can help you with the organization of your trip ahead of time.<br>You will be chauffeured in a Mercedes S-Class, virtually a private jet for the road, equipped with all state-of-the-art features.

During corona period, there would be only one guided tour every two weeks. Without reservation, you are not allowed to visit. Luckily we had a guided tour just for two of us. The guide has shared lots of interesting information about Justus Liebig and explained it extremely well. Over there, we had chance to look back the histories of Justus Liebig, the building, laboratories of Liebig and so on. It’s absolutely worth it to spend 1 hour here.

I was recommended this museum by a friend and I am so grateful for that! The place is inspiring to say the least. Very well maintained and you get a real glimpse of the development of chemistry and science during the 1840s. All the works of Justus Liebig is clearly explained including the Liebig barrel and the condensors of course. It is really to be appreciated that the way the explanations are displayed, for any person with some background in science, the whole picture unfolds in front of you! Not to miss the awesome feeling that persons like Erlenmeyer and Kekule and others have used the lab and the classroom here during their life time! There are explanations in each of the rooms in English as well and so unlike some of the other museums, it's a pleasure to visit this place for non German speakers as well.

Main Liebig's contributions on agriculture are his formula of anorganic fertilizer, the effect of certain minerals on plant and the Law of Minimum. The museum represent the Liebig's laboratory, his work room and his life. The interesting feature of the labs is Liebig combine the modern labs for research purpose as well as education.
