”Bridges & Rivers” Series, Save the Earth!

The River Neckar, The Bridge & Schloss in Heidelberg, Germany

Heidelberg and its Schloss which was a few times burned is surely one interesting that should be seen by everybody happen in this area. After the castle was burned last time they decided not to rebuild it anymore and to turn the place and city in a Cultural place and city for all the Europe as it is situated in the middle of Europe. The guided tour in the remains and reconstructed part of the old Schloss of Heidelberg is very interesting. It is one place that could show you many interesting parts of the history.

Heidelberg Tun

The Heidelberg Tun, or the “World’s Largest Wine Barrel”, was built in 1751 by Prince Elector Karl Theodor to house the wine paid as taxes by the wine growers of the Palatine. It stands seven meters high, is eight and a half meters wide, holds 220,000 liters (58,124 gallons) of wine, and has a dance floor built on top of it. The court jester who guarded the cask during the reign of Prince Elector Carl Philip, a Tyrolean dwarf nick-named Perkeo, was supposedly known for his ability to drink large quantities of wine. Legend has it that he died when he mistakenly drank a glass of water.
