  • At the gate at the entrance of the old town of Heidelberg and connected to Theodor bridge intact. In the pedestrian-only looks like that normally pass through the car. Note to vehicle traffic during their photo shoot.

  • The door that crowns the bridge. Entrance to the old city and necessary step towards the Castle. Pedestrian area along the river where you can find everything. The monkey who is crossing the door is forced photo.

  • ...beeindruckend with its Thingstätte, the Bismarck Tower, the ruins of the monastery. At the end of the visit, and a break in the Waldschänke
