The Old Town of Heidelberg starts from Sofienstrasse and brings you to the castle. In the middle there is the University Area (the oldest university in Germany), the main shopping street (Hauptstrasse) and it includes to famous Karl-Theodor-Bridge / the Old bridge.

Very beautiful town. It will take 15minutes to walk to the bridge from.mid town. It was good walk. There are many restaurants and souvenir shops around the bridge. Food was also great. Nice view.

Weingut Adam Muller

Reviewed By kgilbert78 - Columbus, Ohio

We went here as part of a special evening out during a hobby convention in nearby Heidelberg. Good wine, good tastings and good food. We really enjoyed it--a highlight of our trip to Germany. There is a nice store adjacent where you can buy a number of wine varieties. We're looking forward to having the bottle we brought back for Christmas dinner.

Schwetzingen Castle (Schloss)

Reviewed By Globetrotter045 - Haacht, Belgium

It is a delight to explore the landscaped Gardens and discover all the temples, fake ruins, statues, Fountains and even a mosque. I saw a lot of birds too: ducks, geese, swans, herons and even a tree full of parakeets. Probably escaped parakeets, who found a new home in the park. It is a huge park and it will take 2-3 hours to see everything. And to rest your feet afterwards, there is a café in the Gardens and another one across the ticket office.
Practical info:
The visit of the Schloss can easily be done as a day trip from Heidelberg, it is only half an hour by bus 717. Several tickets available for visiting the gardens/castle. I opted for a guided tour of the castle and visit of the Gardens = 10 €. Daily tours are in German, in the weekend also tours in English. While the guided tour was interesting for the history, I found the interior of the castle not that impressive. The baroque Gardens are the absolute star here.

Hardtwaldstadion

Reviewed By Matthew23LFC - Liverpool, United Kingdom

Came here for the Sandhausen Vs St Pauli game on a Monday night and the organisation of the transport to and from the stadium was really good. The ground rarely sells out so it is easy to get a ticket and the match ticket covers your travel inside the Baden-Württemberg region. At Sandhausens train station a shuttle bus brings you straight to the stadium and back to the station afterwards. The stadium itself is very small but the atmosphere in the away end was as always fantastic. There is beer served inside the stadium but it is a light beer so it is not as strong and not very nice.

Heidelberg Castle (Schloss Heidelberg)

Construction on this regal castle, the symbolic heart of the city, began in the early 1300s.

Reviewed By remly_ml - Stuttgart, Germany

It's a beautiful City of Heidelberg! It was interesting and amazing to know how Heidelberg was planned and built, together with the castle, in the 13th century.
Heidelberg is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Germany. Take the Cable Car to make your Tour complete.. amazing!

This famous path along the Neckar River has been frequented by numerous famous philosophers throughout history.

Reviewed By Rebecca S

We took this hike all the way to the monastery at the very top of the mountain. The whole thing there and back was 4 hours of hiking. It was February but still a wonderful hike. Highly recommended. Definitely a highlight of our trip in Heidelberg.

Thingstatte

Reviewed By D3an_M0riarty - Oensingen, Switzerland

This is a open-air theatre built by the Nazis, modeled after an ancient Greek thater. When you walk up the stairs you get a somewhat eerie feeling. If you close your eyes you can almost see the swastika flags and high-ranking Nazis gathering some 80yrs ago. The place is about a 15-20min drive from the City. From the car park it's about an easy 5min walk.

University Library (Universitatsbibliothek)

Reviewed By Ellen C - Northborough, Massachusetts

Although this library is excellent architecturally, it also houses many rare and precious books, some of which are on display on the second floor. Take a few minutes to find this gem. Then push hard on the door, because the door is tight to keep the fragile manuscripts in temperature controlled darkness, illuminated only when you enter. Fascinating.
