To me Stuttgart definitely seems to be the industry capital of Germany. Arriving with a train a huge Mercedes sign welcomes you, then the map of transportation, every direction is so obvious. You can tell that it has been made with very precise engineering. In case you’re not sure about this after having a walk in the city I invite you to take a look at the Mercedes and Porsche museums.

Here comes my pictures from the car museum and some of the city. Enjoy.



Took me a moment to find out how to redirect a URL if the URL contains a certain word, in Nginx, here it is:

location ~ \.xml$ {
rewrite ^(.*)$$1;
proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
proxy_set_header Host $host;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;

This one is going to redirect each URL which ends with .xml to

Heidelberg was the prettiest town from all over I’ve been in Germany. It is a university town situated on River Neckar, south-west Germany.
The inner city is surrounded by mountains, as you can see in the pictures below, which gives a unique climate and an adorable atmosphere.
Up on the hill is Heidelberg Castle built in the XVI century, you can walk around in between the ruins and have a birds view of the town. Amazing.

“Heidelberg University played a leading part in the era of humanism and the Reformation, and the conflict between Lutheranism and Calvinism, in the 15th and 16th centuries. Heidelberg’s library, founded in 1421, is the oldest existing public library in Germany. In April 1518, a few months after proclaiming his 95 Theses, Martin Luther was received in Heidelberg, to defend them. In 1537, the castle located higher up the mountain was destroyed by a gunpowder explosion. The duke’s palace was built at the site of the lower castle.” – Wikipedia
