The 2013 Heidelberg Schlossbeleuchtung (Castle Illumination) & 400th Annual Fireworks

Around 930p, we decided to leave Bar d’Aix and to start walking back down toward the river for the Schlossbeleuchtung (castle illumination), which is held on the first Saturday of June and July and the second Saturday of September each year in Heidelberg, Germany to commemorate the 1689 and 1693 Read more →

Goldener Hecht & the Neckar River Flood in Heidelberg

I’m back! Over the last few months, I’ve put in several hundred hours at my practicum site, completed (and passed) a comprehensive exam for my degree, and wrote a final professional paper for my degree, so you can see why it’s been a little quiet around here. I have several Read more →

Farewell Dinner at Europa

Although we had known for awhile that we would be moving to Kaiserslautern near when the garrison in Heidelberg would close down, we didn’t know exactly when. Eventually we found out it was going to be at the beginning of June. A friend I worked with turned out to be Read more →

Heidelberg Christmas Market & Our First Time Up to the Schloss

About halfway through December we went to Heidelberg’s Weihnachtsmarkt (Christmas Market). We started at Bismarckplatz around 3p and parked in the Darmstädter-Hof-Centrum parking garage, the best one we have found if you want to start at the Bismarckplatz end of Hauptstrasse. Rain started as soon as we came out of Read more →

McDonald’s and Mandy’s Railyway Diner in Heidelberg

While looking at the pictures for the Long Night of Museums, I realized there were a couple other places I meant to tell you about and never got around to. I was originally going to write a post about where to get American food in Heidelberg, but never got around Read more →

Lange Nacht der Museen (Long Night of Museums)

When I was going to link back to this post in the last one, I realized it didn’t exist. I don’t know if I accidentally deleted the draft or if I forgot to write one. At any rate, here it is now, and if it had appeared in order I Read more →

Saturn & Café Romantic on Heidelberg’s Hauptstrasse

After Sembach, we went back to Heidelberg. I told my husband if he picked somewhere to eat I’d take him to dinner to cheer him up. Originally he wanted to go to Schützenhaus because he wanted schnitzel and wanted me to be able to take pictures since I hadn’t last Read more →

My First Time Trying Maultaschen

My husband picked me up from work on the last Friday in September, and my camera was on the seat. I asked why he had it in the car, and he said he thought I wanted to take pictures at Schützenhaus since I hadn’t last time or, he suggested, we Read more →

Hakim’s Imbiss und Steakhaus

Before we went to Hakim’s Imbiss und Steakhaus, my husband said we were going to go to a “hole in the wall” place he knows. When we got there, I could see why he called it that, but wasn’t sure it even qualified because the dining part had plastic tarp Read more →

Getting My Mexican Fix at Chimichanga in Heidelberg

A few days after getting the car fixed, we went to Chimichanga Bar y Cantina Mexicana. I first heard about this place from Toytown Germany and my husband had apparently found out about it the same way. We made plans to go with a couple of his coworkers. The interior had Read more →
