This wall is part of the the castle ruins of the once majestic and "invincible" Heidelberg Castle. The French, concerned about the impregnable nature of the castle, exploded a large part of it using gunpowder to render it less formidable and threatening for periods when they were not in possession of it. This wall is only one side of a closed building left standing.
