Our First Castle. Perched high above the city, Schloss Heidelberg was the first of many castles we visited in Germany. With the earliest part of the castle being built before 1214, the castle has a fascinating history filled with destruction and renewal. Walls of stone were worn yet rich with beauty, and each night as the sun set, they radiated a golden glow.
