So the week in Heidelberg went super FAST!
It is such a beautiful town, and alot that it has to offer was all in walking distance from our hotel. There were 2 visits to the Heidelberg Zoo, and 3 visits to the wonderful outdoor pool a block from the hotel.
Brodie and Syd are in LOVE with the ZOO….. so much so that we had to go twice just to see their favorite animal….. the Orangatans! It really is a fabulous Zoo,(although I’m not the biggest fan of Zoos’) and over the 2 visits we managed to spend 9 hours there. There are many animals, and exhibits to see, but the best part was the fantastic kids play area. Both times we had lunch beside the lion exhibit, again, with an amazing kids “water park” play area. The kids probably could have spent the entire day there. I am sure the entire city of Heidelberg knows we were at the zoo, as the kiddies have been wearing their tiger masks non-stop since we bought them!
The outdoor swimming pool was also amazing. It was the cleanest and well kept pool I have ever been in, with the cutest food stand. The kids pool was super fun with little slides, water hoses, and a water pump and bucket. It also had the best assortment of kids teeter totters, “spin bowls” and springy horses in the grassy area.
The “Old Town” was within walking distance and on our last day I took the kiddies shopping…… a little bit for them…. a little bit for me!
Heidelberg is one of the oldest university town in Europe. It is an quaint little city, and EVERYONE rides a bike!
So glad that SAP has their head office so close to this awesome city, and that we could include a week there on our 7 week trip!
Enjoy your Daily Dose
