  • This beautiful town had a lot to offer. The streets were all ups and downs with narrow alleys and small cafes all around. The hilly town has lush greenery everywhere. We could enjoy a short walk here.  more »
  • we hiked up the Heiligenberg and were able to take part in a nice event there on April 30th. Everyone could bring their musical instrument and in the arena we listened to the musicians who somehow all played together (mostly drum) without ever really playing with each other. It was unique

  • Nice place. Away from all the sound from the busy Heidelberg. The view of the castle from here is too good. You also have beer garden near by. Where you can chill. I would really advise you to Trek but there is also road and ample parking place in the top.
  • Very nice place, people are good,quite place.heidelberg castle very beautiful.
