Heidelberg, Home of The College Students And The Famous Heidelberg Castle

Spent three enjoyable days in this lovely town. They are having their own beerfest as well! This little town has some great character and cute little shops to wander in and out of.

Alright so getting down to some good food and great sights, right in front of your eyes, is the schnitzel. Well there is no place like the place that I've tried: schnitzel with mushroom sauce, fried potatoes, and a side salad. Oh my gosh! I can't speak better than to say this was amazing, filling, and tickled your stomach in all the right places.  Be prepared to get a lot of food for a fair price. Usually a good Schnitzel dish will run you around 13 to 14 Euros.

So back to the good stuff. Roaming around Heidelberg with such pleasure has its highlights - boat trip down the river to see some excellent views of the famous Heidelberg Castle, the college, and check out some amazing condos and houses scattered throughout.  Towards the far end of the boat trip you can catch a glimpse of two more famous castle's in Heidelberg.  It's your choice to get off and catch the next boat ride back if you would like.

Here I am cruising down The River Neckar.
Here I  get to see all the views of the beautiful houses, apartments, castles, buildings, monuments, all located right above water. A city floating on water? That sounds bit scary.

Waterfront condos and townhouses that cost more than you cannot even imagine.
Lovely houses on the hill

Neuburg Abbey

Carl Theodore Old Bridge

Before all the tours get off the cruise ships, to view this magnificent castle, I think I will get some intimate time with this gorgeous landmark. The whole town talks about this. 

So now going to the Heidelberg Castle. Amazing! Here you get great views of the whole city. It is a beautifully built Castle. You can choose to go inside, pay for a tour and see the museums, or just stay outside, snap some photos of the courtyard.  Lots of cruise ships do tours to this castle. So there must be something great worth hearing about, in regards to the history, of this amazing castle.

A nice view from the top. You can get a glimpse of most of the city here.
Courtyard of the Heidelberg Castle

That was a great ending to being in Heidelberg. Thank you Heidelberg for showing me such a great time!

If your looking for nightlife this town wouldn't suit you. They do have some cute little bars, if you would like to have a drink or two, but its more for the sites and doing some in-and-out shopping.  Enjoy!

Dachau Concentration Camp

Dachau Concentration Camp which was the first of the Nazi concentration camps opened in Germany 1933 by Heinrich Himmler, its purpose was enlarged to include forced labor, and eventually, the imprisonment of Jews, ordinary German and Austrian criminals, and eventually foreign nationals from countries that Germany occupied or invaded. The Dachau camp system grew to include nearly 100 sub-camps, which were mostly work camps or "Arbeitskommandos."  

This house was the former commandants offices

The Jourhaus served as the main exit and entrance to the prisoners’ camp and as the main office of the camp SS personnel. Passage through the building was made possible by a rod iron gate, through which the prisoners entered the camp after their initial arrival, and later marched through each day with their labor units. The gatehouse separated the 
prisoners from the outside world.

The Shunt Room-As you view the contents in the tables that divide the rooms, you will notice that the first four tables display objects from the perspective of the prisoners, as they surrendered their personal effects, and in essence, their individuality. The last four tables show artifacts from the perspective of the SS officers, as they issued the prisoners numbers, stripping them of their individuality.

   The Exhibition Museum

The main exhibition focuses on the fate of the prisoners. The leitmotif is the “path of the prisoners”: this refers to the path by which the prisoners came to the camp, their life in the camp, and their journey to either death or liberation.

Memorial statue for the victims of the 
death marches in Dachau

Courtyard and Bunker was located between the rear of the maintenance building and the prison block; it was used for carrying out punishments, torture, or executions.

Maintenance building, situated on the Alte Römerstraße, are the Memorial Site’s administrative offices, the archive, library, and seminar rooms.

Mortal Agony of Christ Chapel from 1960 was the first religious monument to be erected. 

The Protestant Church of Reconciliation was dedicated on April 30, 1967. The building is set into the ground of the memorial site leading the visitor beneath the surface.

The Old Crematorium

The New Crematorium

The Death Chamber

The Waiting Room this area was where the victims were to be informed on using the
 supposed "showers"

Below you will see photos of the barracks

The International Memorial and Monument were officially dedicated in 1968, the monument was designed by the Yugoslavian artist and concentration camp survivor, Nandor Glid. His design, selected from an international competition, and was an important indication that the plans to erect a memorial site on the grounds of the former concentration camp would be realized.
