Snapshots of Heidelberg

This summer I had to present at a conference in Heidelberg, Germany. Because I had no other holiday plans, I decided together with a friend that it would be a nice idea to attach a holiday to this conference trip. After being in Heidelberg for a while, we went to Prague, Vienna and Bratislava. In this post I will show you our highlights of Heidelberg.

1. The Old Bridge
