The University of Heidelberg, founded in 1386, is the oldest university in Germany.  This building was built in 1712 – 35 and now houses a museum and concert hall.  In addition, the old student prisons covered in graffiti can be seen.  I'm not sure why a university needs a prison or why students were sent there! :-)  My great-great-grandfather went to school here and hopefully he stayed out of jail. To see my best photos of Germany, please visit the Germany section of my portfolio
