Heidelberg's popularity is based on 3 pillars: its location, castle and university. Situated in the valley of Neckar river, the beautiful old town with its sights and narrow, picturesque roads, is easily accessible on foot. Lively main street is ideal for extended shopping: In the pedestrian area no cars or public transportation are allowed to disturb the experience.
The world famous castle is without doubt Heidelberg's highlight. A perfect view, numerous cultural activities and festivals attract the castle's countless visitors. If you extend your stay into the night you can enjoy the magical lighting and - if you are lucky - one of the fireworks.
The city's atmosphere is moulded by its university. A favourite among Germany's students it has always guaranteed a certain free spirit and been a home to great thinkers and an impressive number of Nobel laureates.
