The next stop on our city tour was Marktplatz, the market place square in the heart of Heidelberg's Altstadt (Old Town). We had free time to explore at our leisure.
Beautiful attractions of Market Square include the overall area, the Town Hall, the Church of the Holy Spirit, the Ritter facade (Hauptstraße 178) and the facade of the Old Pharmacy (Hauptstraße 190). You can sit and enjoy a coffee by the Hercules fountain or browse through the various shops.
We were fortunate to have clear blue skies as a background for our images of Old Town. One couldn't have asked for a better day.
After doing some shopping and photography in Market Square, we had enough time to walk along the Neckar River to the Old Bridge. From there it was a short walk along the narrow cobblestone streets back to the Tourist Center, which was where our motor coach would return to pick us up.
