If you’re missing traditional July 4th festivities, you will definitely want to put Heidelberg Castle Illumination (Heidelberger Schlossbeleuchtung) on your list of events to attend this summer.

Watch from a boat or a prime spot on the banks of the Neckar as Heidelberg Castle is illuminated in dramatic red light. Then, an explosion of colorful fireworks brightens the night sky, reflecting in the river for a stunning effect.

There are two dates remaining to choose from for this event — July 9 and September 3. Visit www.heidelberg-event.com to start planning your trip.
