Part 1: Neckarsteinach - day trip off the beaten path

View of the Heidelberg bridge out our hotel window:
I had planned a trip to a small town that was off the beaten path, Neckarsteinach. This town had 4 small castles and was also in hiking distance to another town (again off the beaten path) called Dilsberg, again with a castle. We took a S bahn from Heidelberg to Neckarsteinach, Neckarsteinach is upstream from Heidelberg.

Noah in Neckarsteinach:
