  • Nice museum! We encountered mistakenly when we visited the castle. Did not know it was there and what to expect, but a very nice surprise! Nice old collection. Informative. Photography with flash forbidden. Without flash is possible. Small souvenir shop present.
  • They've got interesting info about inventions and discoveries on the pharmaceutical industry. They also try to make it interactive, it's worth to check it out. The visit won't take you longer than 1 hour

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.
