Lorelei the Siren of the Great Rhine River!!! This rock where the flags are at the top is where the legend of Lorelei began. Apparently she was a beautiful Siren who used to sit upon the rock - her long hair flowing over her shoulders...She would lure in unsuspecting sailors and when their boats crashed against the rocks - she would take all of their possessions.
More grapes! Can you imagine trying to pick them off those seriously steep hills!
After the Rhine cruise we headed South to the oldest university city in Germany - Heidelburg! We loved it here but unfortunately had very little time to explore. It's filled with such character, cobble stone streets, little cafes, flowers under most of the windows. It was a pretty laid back atmosphere, calm, quaint, and simply beautiful. One of its biggest attractions is the old sandstone castle.
Goodnight everyone, before you all wake up we will be saying goodbye to Neustadt Germany and hello to the Black Forest in Switzerland.
