    Great way to spend a few hours strolling around the gardens or taking in the views of Heidleberg from the viewing area or having a glass of wine down in the wine cellar and see the giant wine barrels
    And a visit to the Pharmacy Museum to complete the visit

    If you want to earn a heavy German lunch with Beer this is the way to take. A beautiful walk up the hill with beautiful sights and remains on top of the hill including a Biergarten. This is worth the effort...

    Starting in 1890, the historic Heidelberg Mountain railways, one of the city's most popular attractions. is a two-section funicular railway. It runs all year round between Kornmarkt, about 113 meters above sea level, to Königstuhl, nearly 550 meters above sea level and the highest point in Heidelberg, providing impressive views of the city, the Neckar valley and the Rhine plain - right up to the Palatinate Wine Route. It could accommodate up to 50 passengers on each of its journeys. Since its renovation between 2003 and 2005, the Heidelberger Bergbahn is considered a striking combination of one of the country’s oldest and most modern funiculars mountain railway in Germany presenting quite different appearances. It is the longest mountain railway route in Germany - 1.5 km long. More than a million passengers use the traditional mountain railways and enjoy this attraction every year. Visitors are guaranteed a wonderful view of Heidelberg and the surrounding area. During our ride on it, we experienced Heidelberg and its charming surroundings from a very special perspective.

    Nice old city square, very well taken care of, with an Herkules fountain as just one of several attractions, like the Church of the Holy Spirit and the Hotel zum Ritter with a wonderful facade.

    I suppose there are other places in the world where university students incarcerated for mostly petty crimes were permitted to express remarkable artistic creativity on the walls — and where that creativity is still possible to see. But there certainly cannot be many, and it is remarkable to see the results of these students' creativity right in front of you from floor to ceiling. This is an unusual if not unique attraction, and while some of the cathedrals and castles one might visit may sometimes blend somewhat in our memories over time, this will always stand out and be clearly remembered. Most worthwhile.

    Built by students to underline the Nazi movement this monument on top of the mountain is worth the climb.

    This river sides are beautiful and picturesque, great for pictures as populated by tourist attractions such as bridges or castle views but also stunning villas.

    I mostly enjoyed to journey, on a mountainbike starting from Boxberg to the top and downhill to Heidelberg Altstadt. But also the top was great, amazing view on the river and town.

    This is one of the Heidelberg picturesque skyline features, located on the Market Square. A bit difficult to take a picture of its facade as the main entrance is located on a very narrow street.

    You can feel the knowledge that is contained inside this building! Well reconstructed (they were still doing renovations), beautiful, immense and with nice details.

    Jesuitekirche is a nice church located in the old town in Heidelberg. The Church is nicer than most, however it is nowhere near as stunning as the best in Europe. This is worth visiting if you're in the Old Town already.
