Heidelberg Illuminates

By Linda Tancs

The fireworks at Heidelberg Castle in southwest Germany are an ancient affair.  Now 400-years-old, the pyrotechnics began as a celebration of the royal marriage between Friedrich V and England’s Elizabeth Stuart.  The thrice yearly event (June, July and September) will be supplemented today to mark the International German Gymnastics Festival taking place in the region.  Besides the north and south river banks, great views are in store for those aboard river boats of the Rhine-Neckar River Cruising Company.
