Moselle and Rhine Rivers Sketchbook, Post 8, Heidelberg, Germany
Our first stop was Heidelberg Castle high on the ridge above the town overlooking the Neckar River! The views are stunning and the castle mostly in ruins, but with a lovely courtyard, a shop, and incredible weinstube under the castle where we were able to be refreshed! The beautiful red sandstone gate known as "Elizabeth's Gate", was irresistabel to want to draw, and paint and once home I learned much more about Elizabeth (more about her in Thursday's post).
After having wurst and beer in a beautiful square in the town center, we looked at shops where I found the perfect little dirndl dress to bring home for our granddaughter in jewel box of a tiny shop located near the Catherdral of the Holy Spirit. We enjoyed an organist's playing and lit candles for healing in the cathedral. Another special day, with my friend Luanne!
