  5. There weren't a lot of restaurants open in Heidelberg on Christmas; we went into Palmbrau Gasse, a small quaint place where we ate flamkuchen, a German-style pizza made with crème fraîche rather than tomato sauce. After a long, cold day of hiking around Heidelberg and the castle that overlooks the town, it was absolutely delicious.
