Those who visit Heidelberg soon understand why the painter Goethe said it has “something ideal” about it. When guests from afar name their favorite German destinations, Heidelberg is often at the top of the list. Located in the beautiful Neckar Valley, Heidelberg is a University town with big city flair, where historical architecture sits side by side with busy shopping centers, cafes, and restaurants.
The Heidelberg Castle’s sweeping grounds are a visitor magnet, and the number one sight-seeing destination in the city. The Castle is easily accessible by foot or by tram.

One of the most popular viewpoints is on the Heiligenberg, opposite the Heidelberg Castle. From Philosophenweg you can enjoy breathtaking views of the city, river and mountains. Once back down in the city, you will find a variety of historic buildings, impressive monuments and imaginative fountains, all of which tell a fascinating story.
While walking through Heidelberg you will discover many small green oases which invite you to linger. Central public squares and parks are popular meeting places for people of all ages, especially in the summer.
One of the most beautiful stages in the city, the Heidelberg Castle, opens in summer for the “Schlossfestspiele.”
