I took the train down from Frankfurt to meet my brother, who was visiting me. At the time I worked in Eschborn (a suburb of Frankfurt) and while I was working he went to Heidelberg. When I met up with him, he told me a story of how he went into a Loewenbrau (“Lervenbroy” not “Lowenbrow”) pub and tried to order a schnitzel. The waitress didn’t understand him, so he had about 2 liters of beer waiting for her to bring him his Schnitzel. After a while, he was wondering what was going on because she never came to check on him (something very German, wait staff doesn’t come to you like they do in America. They let you chill there and you have to ask them to come over for something. You’ll sit there all day waiting for the check if you don’t ask for it.). Finally, he asked, “where’s my schnitzel?” “You didn’t order one.” “Yes I did!” “Oh, I am sorry, I must have not understood you.” “Forget it… I’m kinda toasty now and I need some fresh air.” Haha! What a fantastic time in Heidelberg.
It is indeed a wonderful place to visit with a very quaint, cute old center. Certainly go up and visit the Schloss because it’s very pretty, and it’s got some great views of the city. Then walk back down to the city center and grab an ice cream.over 6 years ago
