Interesting

Overall an educational event. The participating colleagues found the historical parts a little too long. But on the whole "Lisbeth" did that very well!

We really liked it.

The Guidin took us through Heidelberg and gave us explanations in a very lively and engaging way. Even our 12 year old son was thrilled. Appointment and time worked. Can only be recommended.
