A bill for €93 for 3 nights!!! Now that IS what we expected in Germany – that was our most expensive campsite EVER and they still had the brass face to charge extra for using the shower! There was a charge for the pitch, for each person, for the tow vehicle, €10 per night for 4 dogs, for electricity (Strom) and for something else that we haven’t quite managed to translate.
We drove up the River Neckar through Dilsberg, which was just as beautiful as Heidelberg. We saw a lot of it, as it too had that seemingly unavoidable German feature – a traffic jam, which gave us plenty of time to peruse the sights! Unfortunately, the bridge we needed to cross the Neckar was closed, but due to another long traffic jam back the way we came, we decided to push on regardless.
Heidelberg. At last. I thought I had applied for a job here when I left Uni. Everyone told me how beautiful Heidelberg was and how much I would enjoy it. Turned out the job was in Hamburg – and thankfully, I didn’t get it anyway!
We thought we were going to take a souvenir of Vilsberg with us – we had to drive through a Monument Historique – an arch quoted as 2.8m high. We are 2.6m high… It was a close one. Lucky we trust the Sat Nav.
