|Bad Duerkheim Jun 12|
After Kloster Limburg we continued into the hills to see Burgruine Hardenburg, a large castle ruin in one of Bad Dürkheim's little incorporated villages. We enjoyed lunch and wine at a Biergarten there, then returned to Bad Dürkheim for some ice cream to erase any actual exercise we might have accidentally gotten with all the walking. ;) It was a great day trip, and I learned about a tram that I'd somehow never noticed before - Tram X! Sounds like bad sci-fi, but it's an express between Heidelberg (Bismarckplatz), Mannheim, and Bad Dürkheim. I don't think it gets you there much faster than the usual S-Bahn itinerary, but it's simpler.
I think my next Weinstrasse destination will be Wachenheim...to see where all that Sekt we win at pub quiz comes from. :D
