29 Heidelberg Castle Ruins in Heidelberg, Germany

The magnificent Heidelberg Castle ruins stand majestically on a wooded hill named Königstuhl and nicknamed “The King’s Throne.” Starting in the early 13th century, this was the fortified palace of Palatine counts and later Prince Electors before being repeatedly destroyed during enemy attacks and a lightning strike. On the left is the Englischer Bau which was built in the 17th century. In the center is Prison Tower. On the right is the Gate Tower entrance.
