Where to stay in Heidelberg

Most of the city's lodging is centralized near Altstadt, the Old Town. Here cafes, shops, and tourist sites line the cobbled streets. Many of the guesthouses here work hard to retain the area's historical feel.

  • www.visitcemetery.eu Stands for beauty among the 17 cemeteries of Heidelberg. His name translated is "Mountain Cemetery." We are talking about a cemetery unwonted dated 1844 and definite structure. Spread over 15 hectares of land, the cemetery houses more than 17,000 graves. The real peculiarity, which leaked the name, nature, hard and overbearing, rises and merges with the cemetery itself, by steep paths that reach a length of 20 kilometers to terraced slopes and hairpin bends. All this echoes the romantic vision of Johann Christian Metzger, promoter of an architecture "green" cemetery, in order to offer visitors a unique visual and olfactory sensory experience. The structure is irregular, bounded on the North by a disused railway line and crisscrossed by footpaths to guide the visitor in the visit to the most important personalities buried there. There are two known funerary monuments, one in memory of victims of AIDS (a black granite Obelisk) and another for children born prematurely. Resting here characters known as the sociologist Max Weber and the poet Friedhric Gundolf.

  • Beautifully situated graveyard directly on the mountain with many beautiful itineraries. The pathways are downloadable on the homepage. Who wants to go to famous graves (Furtwängler, Ebert, Wankel, Bunsen...) is right here. It is also a good book about this cemetery, for all HDler who are their history interested in ideal.
