Day 5: Heidelberg Castle & Ostheimer Wooden Figures

From Attendorn we drove 3 hours to see Schloss Heidelberg (Heidelberg castle).

But to get there we walked up 315 stairs.

It was a bit strenuous for most of our group.

But a very beautiful walk as we climbed.

The Friedrichsbau, right inside the entrance to the castle.

Venturing out on the terrace.

Looking out on Heidelberg down below.

A giant wine barrel at the castle... but not the largest...

This is the world's largest wine barrel (from 1751).

Checking out the apothecary museum inside.

Down from the castle there was a flea market outside the Church of the Holy Spirit (Heiliggeistkirche).

I love these little side streets.

So scenic.

We ran through Heidelberg pretty quickly and were off to Ostheimer, the wooden toy store.

Jeni was so excited to buy a bunch of wooden figures to bring back home.

Even Harold got into it and bought a bunch of wooden toys too.
