Tips

    The old town of Heidelberg is a MUST - not only for Japanese tourists!

    If you descend from the Heidelberg Castle down to the old town, you pass the Kornmarkt, past the former Elector's Pharmacy, past the Ritter House to the Heiliggeistkirche. It was the burial place of the princes. From there you can reach the banks of the Neckar in a few minutes and the old bridge with the bridge gate. If you have time, cross the Neckar and climb up the other side to the Philosophenweg, from where you have a magnificent view of the castle, the river Neckar and the old town.Worth seeing in the old town are various university buildings (for example, the New and Old University, the Studentenkarzer, the Old Arsenal - now Mensa of the University - and the Art Nouveau built University Library). In 1368, Elector Ruprecht I founded the University of Heidelberg, the oldest in Germany.

    The old town is the heart and the historical center of Heidelberg. First mentioned in a document in 1196, it is world-famous for its unique triad of city, mountains and river.
    The old town covers around 1,380 hectares, of which only 9.8 percent are built on. The district is characterized by the forest area of the Königstuhl, which at 564 meters is one of the highest mountains in the Odenwald.

    Very nice to look at, especially in the evening ... if you want to take photos in peace, you should be there very early in the morning, otherwise it will get crowded

    The old town of Heidelberg forms the historic city center with cobbled streets and centuries-old buildings, towered over by Heidelberg Castle.

    The old town is very worth seeing. For young people in the evening, the lower street is very interesting.
