    The Philosophenweg is an approximately two-kilometer-long, especially steep, path that leads from the Neuenheim district of Heidelberg to Heiligenberg. It is located directly opposite Heidelberg Castle on the Königstuhl and is one of the sights of Heidelberg.

    Offers great views of the opposite castle and the Königstuhl. One of the warmest spots in Germany, that's why it always blooms here earlier than in the valley. Numerous benches invite you to take a break. Who wants to do a bit more can continue to the monastery Neustift.

    First of all, it can be said that it is a beautiful path, with a fantastic view over the Neckar and Heidelberg with its beautiful castle in the background. If you hike the way, you will pass the philosopher garden, the botanical jewel of Heidelberg. In spring, the first flowers open here earlier than elsewhere, and plants from subtropical areas thrive

    If you continue to the monastery of Neuburg, you can stop there wonderfully and then go down to the brick houses country road to walk from there along the Neckar, past the Russian stone back in town.

    The Philosophenweg is about two kilometers long, especially at the beginning very steep, that leads from the Heidelberg district of Neuenheim to the Heiligenberg. It is thus directly opposite the Heidelberg Castle at the Königstuhl and is one of the sights of Heidelberg.

    On the Philosophenweg in Heidelberg, the beautiful view of the city and the castle automatically makes you philosophize about this beautiful area on the Neckar! Very inspiring!
