5 great things to do in Heidelberg with kids #Travel #Germany

This is a guest post by Jane Welton, about a summer family trip to Heidelberg, Germany. Jane is a freelance writer and translator who lives in Surrey with her husband and 12 year-old daughter. Jane has spent a lot of time in other European countries and is bringing her daughter up speaking French and German as well as English. She’s also worked as a teacher of deaf children so she’s interested in sign language as well. Jane blogs at Multilingual Mum.
