Tentative. GERMANY - Heidelberg

A dear present from my dear cousins, one of whom lives in Germany with his girlfriend. A nice memory from one of their trips across the country. So good to know close relatives and friends know that I collect postcards and send such whenever they can! :)

Heidelberg is situated in an unique landscape in the valley of the River Neckar. The castle is a chef d'oeuvre of German renaissance architecture. With the ruins of the castle, the baroque style architecture based on a ground plan of the middle ages and the surrounding landscape Heidelberg became the centre of the German romanticism in the l9th century. In the European wide difference around 1900 concerning the reconstruction of Heidelberg castle the modern preservation of monuments was constituted ("to preserve not to restore").
