Königstuhl




Königstuhl translates as “King’s Seat” and is one of the larger mountains in the city where we live. On Monday we walked through town and took the historic funicular railway to the top of the mountain, where we could see the spectacular views of the city of Heidelberg through the mist and where Mikey could play in all of the leaves.

    • That was the first time I’d been the whole way up! It’s quite the trek (by the train or driving) but you’re right… gorgeous in the fall. There were a lot of other people up there too.

    Simple beautiful! Those are great pictures! 🙂
    I really like the bike one, too!

  4. What a beautiful place! I’m curious about that second photo. In the background, hanging along the wall of that building, are those tombstones? Tell me about them! They’re incredibly interesting. Beautiful, beautiful shots as always! Thanks for stopping by and linking up. Have a great day.

    • They are tombstones, I don’t know much about them to be honest though, there are also tombstones inside. I know that the church itself is late gothic period, perhaps one of the oldest in the city and was renovated in both Baroque and then Neogothic styles.

      It is associated with the local university, which itself was founded in 1386, is the oldest in Germany and 4th university established by the Roman Empire. The church was used to bury dead professors, local officials and prominent residents… so perhaps they are the ones who are on the walls and inside the church, I’m not really sure!
