    Germany. Great place to be and lots to do. Friendly people who love to have a good time. Best beer on the planet, maybe the universe: Eichbaum Bier (yum)

    First sign of existence  in 766, became a city in 16o7. Only city that's laid out in squares, easy to get around if you know your alphabet.
    Located between two rivers, Rhein und Neckar. Always been important place to do commerce. Always in the middle of trouble, got almost bombed to smitherenes in the Big One, but we came back better than ever.  Lots of parks and green places to hang out and relax.

    Home to Fasching celebrations that will shut the place just about down.Ahoi!
