What a splendid day for an autumn fest on Heidelberg’s Hauptstrasse or Main Street! With our bellies full with Neuer Wein (new wine), Zwiebelkuchen (onion pie), Bier, Bratwurst and Thai fare, we’re now at home resting, watching all the revelry from our fifth-floor apartment.
The day was full watching children try their hands at archery and a Renaissance ladder climbing game; shaking our hips to traditional polka tunes and French chansons; going back in time via items at a flea market filled with sentiment and history; and brushing shoulders with old and new friends.
The musicians and men in Renaissance garb are still making their rounds, with flags, bugles and drums in hand. I think they might just call us out for round two so we can partake in more action!
