It looks like Heidelberg holds a higher place in the hearts of travelers than I thought. On our upcoming ED trip we'll be spending a night in the Hotel Golden Falke, with a view of the castle from our room. Nice link!

That is a very concise list of things to see. I was surprised that Germany's North See and Baltic attractions were featured. You've got to be pretty insensitive to "cold" to appreciate these beaches.

Take a trip to the lovely island Rügen and have a look for yourself. Ze Germans like to go to the ocean too you see. Seaside resort towns like Sassnitz, Binz and Sellin where built with beautiful architecture the turn of the 19th and 20th century for the nobility and rich and famous. Don't miss to take a look at Prora. A 4500 meter long (!!!) building built buy the nazis to accommodate German workers on holiday.

This i picture from the old resort town of Binz (notice the beach):

Hell, even up in Northern Sweden the beaches are filled in the summers with people swimming, water skiing and relaxing in the sun. After a winter with -20 C and 1 meter of snow, everything that's not frozen is nice to swim in.

You are right. It looks as though Prora can accommodate a lot of beach goers. I should have admitted in my earlier comment that in my youth I too must have been insensitive to cold because I used to swim in the 55F English Channel and, I think, enjoy it. I guess, as you get older, you get more sensitive to cold.

I thought some of you repeat EDers might be interested in something beyond the Castle shot and Berchtesgaden as beautiful as they are. The Mosel and the Rheinland are hard to beat in the fall and not as crowded as Octoberfest. Neuer Wein and Zweibelkuchen are the best.
