Heidelberg it self is a picture perfect place, but the Ruins of Heidelberg (Schloss Heidelberg) is the real show stealer. Located in the Heidelberg Castle Gardens, the ruins stand tall in the middle. If you are looking for ruins that are massive, very well preserved and take you back in time: then you have come to the right place!

Trier is a city with history dating back to the 4th century BC! The city is located on the banks of the river Moselle and is most famous for the Porta Nigra, a Roman gate that still stands to this day! Trier is worth a (half)day trip if you are wandering around the area, and is a perfect spot to relax while soaking up all the pretty old historical sights!
Before you continue to read further on this blog, we did not get a ticket to enter the castle. For years we wanted to see this castle with our own eyes. So earlier last month when we decided to drive to Austria, we thought of picking half a day out for visiting Neuschwanstein Castle. To be honest, you do not need to spend a dime for enjoying the outside of the castle at all. We were a bit lazy/ in a rush so paid for a few things. At the end, glad we did it: but definitely not the prettiest or most impressive castle we ever visited :-). Got to be honest!
Burg Eltz is located in the German province Rheinland-Pfalz, between the cities Koblenz and Trier. The medieval castle is built in the 12th century and is nestled on a hillside. The castle is famous for being well preserved, surviving nature and human interference. If you are in the Western side of Germany, be sure to make a quick stop here!
The Black Forest (or Schwarzwald in German) of Germany is located in the Southwest of the country. The whole forest covers up an area of more than 160 kilometers. There is enough to see, but in this blog we focus mainly on the place called Triberg. The town Triberg is located within one hour driving distance of the big city Freiburg and has a lot to offer.

Jülich is a small city situated between Aachen and Cologne. Samia works for the researchcenter in the city, where also a lot of our international friends live. Sometimes we like to go and relax a bit in Jülich, there it has some great leisure spots for a warm sunday! Let me take you on a sightseeing tour through Jülich! These are the three places to visit.
This year we visited several parks throughout Middle and East Germany. Uncensored Travel already wrote about all three parks before, and now our video about visiting these beautiful gems is online! Enjoy! We visited Kromlau, Bastei and Bergpark Kassel.

The rock formation of Bastei is located in the Saxon Switzerland Park in the eastern part of Germany. It is located near the Czech Republic border a few kilometers underneath Dresden. The rock formation is right next to the river Elbe and is 194 meters high.
In this post I will take you on a journey to the beautiful Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe in Kassel, located in the middle of Germany. Kassel itself is a beautiful city to visit, this post will only focus on the park to give you a quick insight on what to see and with some useful links if you wish to venture to it yourself. The park is an UNESCO heritage sight, and it is worth a visit! The style is in English landscape and boy did they pull it off! With some of the monuments dating back to the 1700’s! So be sure to pack your best sneakers for walking the whole day (check here for some tips about that).
What to see in the park?
The big Schloss (castle) is a beauty from the outside alone already. Do to time we did not enter the castle, but just look at this humongous building in the middle of the park. There is a museum inside for all you art lovers.
