Heidenheim, Baden-Württemberg, Germany, is a town with a population of approximately fifty thousand in southern Germany near the border with Bavaria.

The most important sight is the Hellenstein Castle (in German, Schloss Hellenstein), which was built on a hilltop overlooking the town. The history of the Hellenstein Castle dates back to the eleventh century, when the construction of the castle started. In the sixteenth century the castle burned down and had to be reconstructed. On the site, you can find the so-called Kindlesbrunnen, a more-than-seventy-eight-meter-deep well with iron bars on top that look like a cage that protect children from falling in. It refers to the local legend that the babies in Heidenheim are not brought by the stork, but they get taken out of this well. If you like museums, check out the Museum im Römerbad displaying items from the Roman Empire and Museum Schloss Hellenstein, which is also located on the site of the castle.
