Rewinding back on a quick lunch stop in Heidelberg as Lukas drove us on a 6-hour car ride from our castle in Aerzen to Munich! In rainy weather with a pretty bad rental car experience, he was a real trooper. I was really the luckier one in this situation! We got a slice of no rain for a late lunch in Heidelberg and spent a short time walking through the center before getting back on the road to our final destination!
I adored the architecture in Heidelberg and it was a lot busier than I had expected! I know it’s a university city but I was surprised by the amount of foot traffic and tourism. Maybe this was in contrast to the quieter town of Hameln we just came from. The pastel pretty buildings I could look at forever.
We stopped for lunch at Lowenbrau, simply for convenience for our rumbling tummies.
Those teal shutters, though!! *heart eyes emoji* The architecture in Heidelberg is absolutely stunning and the palette of the city is beautiful. I love the warmer peach tones with accents of bright teals and cool greens. It’s really pleasing and such a nice contrast!

This was moments before the rain started picking up on us! We then beelined back to our car and continued our journey. Heidelberg was definitely a fun stop and I’m looking forward to going back for an extended stay! Any recommendations for places to sleep/eat/do next time? Hopefully, we’ll have brighter weather!
