Heidelberg - a pearl in Germany

The Peace Run arrived in Germany and started in one of Germany's most beautiful cities: Heidelberg!

Our first meeting of the day brought us to the "Freie Waldorfschule Heidelberg".

...they have lots of animals in the school. What a pig!

...the children prepared school-made sweets for our team...
