  • The gate is at the entrance to the city off of the old bridge and a must stop for anyone visiting Heidelberg. 
  • This romantic city has lots to offer: the castle with pharmacists museum; the oldest University of Germany (1386) with beautiful aula, library and University Huilige prison: the spirit Church and the Alte Brucke over the Neckar

  • I was on a tour bus and we went to the top. The views are really great. Its a beautiful spot and the valley below looks like it is from a postcard. Would love to come in the winter.
