  • 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.

  • 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.
  • Tolle Wanderung von Neuenheim aus über den Philosophenweg, von dort aus zeigt ein Weg ab, um auf den Heiligenberg zu wandern. Dort gibt es einen Aussichtsturm, von dem aus man das Neckartal überblicken kann, und es gibt dort auch eine Gaststätte, wo man gut essen kann.
  • Sehr mystischer aber schöner Ort . Einfach immer wieder schön da hin zu kommen.
  • Thingstaette zu wenig genutzt
