Heidelberg Haus.

Heidelberg Haus

The murals are an attraction, but there is so much more to see inside, including the 1906 antique bakery. Items are sourced from antiques locally and from Germany.

Gnome and mural.

Heidelberg Haus Murals

There is a big gnome statue for photos next to the mural. That was a welcome find since we arrived (regrettably) after the bakery was closed. Peeking in the window, it looks like that's the real attraction. at this gnome-laden bakery!
