  • Heidelberg as a town is a relaxing and nice place to stay for three or four days with your family. A town you can walk, enjoy good german food, relax and know something about the history of the place  more »
  • This arch is a symbol of the old Heidelberg Bridge, a charming dome-shaped façade that can be viewed and taken by the city of Heidelberg as a backdrop. Every day, tourists come to take a photo.

  • It is the entrance to the old town, by the bridge that looks like the one in Prague. It is very nice, although right now they are restaurándola and can not be appreciated in all its splendor. Place of passage forced either enter or leave to the city, besides it is located in the central part of the historical case.
