Castles and Cars

We spent a few days checking out the main towns of Heidelberg and Stuttgart. Heidelberg is a cozy little university focused town, but is also know for it's picturesque castle. Stuttgart is a larger metro that is the birthplace of the automobile (Daimler, Mayback, Benz, and Porsche) and has a few lesser known castles of it's own.

Highly recommend:

  • Heidelberg castle
  • Heidelberg Christmas markets
  • Stuttgart Christmas markets
  • Stuttgart Königstraße (King's Street) pedestrian area

Other sites to check out:

  • Philosophers Walk
  • Heidelberg old bridge
  • Stuttgart new and old castles
  • Mercedes Benz museum
  • Porsche museum
