Berliner Bär in Heidelberg

Whilst we were exploring Heidelberg, Berliner Teddy-Bär was going on his own Stadtrundfahrt (sightseeing tour) of Heidelbärg. Here he has posted some of his selfies.

This one is of Teddy on the old Karl-Theodor-Brücke (Charles Teddy Bridge):

In the background, half-way up the hillside is the Philosophenweg (Philosophers' footpath) which gives wonderful view back to the old town and castle.

Not that Teddy could possibly have walked on that, as the path up to it was closed due to building work and had barriers across it.

Hmm, or maybe he did?

Back on the bridge again, he poses with the bridge baboon sculpture, just like all the other tourists were doing.

Teddy then went up to Heidelberg Castle for a look around.

Oh noes! Teddy has been up to his tricks, photo-bombing other people's photos in front of one of the enormous wine casks at Heidelberg Castle.

Ted tells me he thinks it is funny that everyone has their photo taken in front of what they think is the largest wine-cask in the world, then they go around the corner and see the real largest wine-cask! This wine barrel can hold 220,000 liters (58,124 gallons) of wine, and has a dance floor built on top of it.

Berliner Teddy isn't so interested in wine, but he does like Gummibärchen (jelly bears). here he is looking in the window of the Bären Treff (bears' hang-out).

See anything you like Ted? He nods enthusiastically. Sicher!
