  • When doing the sight seeing in the old town of Heidelberg the "old bridge" is one of the must photo stops.  more »
  • It's the door to access the bridge. It's a pretty door. She won't let the cars pass. It's a bit like the doors of the Charles Bridge in Prague, a little less pretty.

  • Compared to the size of the bridge is a large gate. What is still close to the Heidelberg Castle. Monkeys are next to the statue is becoming the symbol.

  • Very beautiful and peaceful complex, which I gladly came to study. The past is to owe the Nazi regime, but that makes non-negative. Behind the theater ruins an old churches

  • Like, I remember the trip we made in late 2001, with the Association for local history Nordheim E.v. on the holy mountain. The facility has surprised us very positively really also due to your size.

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.
