Excerpt from A Guide to Heidelberg and Its Environs: With 12 Views and 2 Plans of the Town and the Environs Heidelberg, although according to size and the number of its inhabitants, a place of only middle rank among German towns, enjoys nevertheless, a celebrity far exceeding that of many places greater in extent and population. This is mainly owing to its position, so rich in natural beauties of the most diversified character, and such as are but rarely found united in the same spot. In close proximity to the town, are charming valleys containing meadows traversed by clear running streams and bordered by dense woods; lofty hills crowned with forests intersected by shady paths and whose summits and slopes afford the most magnificent prospects; a fertile and highly-cultivated plain crossed by numerous highroads, planted on each side with shady fruit-trees; and lastly the Neckar winding through the valley and affording scenery which partakes alternately of the soft, the sublime and the beautiful, until, issuing here from the valley in a broad stream, it flows away across the plain and finally joins the Rhine at a short distance below. Not less remarkable is Heidelberg on account of its history. The powerful race of the Counts Palatine and of the Electors of the Rhine had their residence here throughout six centuries, continuing to exercise considerable influence both by their counsel and action, upon every great and important event by which the times in which they lived were characterized.
