Top areas in Heidelberg


A city of knowledge and baroque charm, Heidelberg is quite the popular destination for travelers in Germany and from around the world. The city sits in a steep valley of the legend-rich Odenwald on the River Neckar. Having been spared for the most part during World War II, the city’s historic structures still stand as a testament to the centuries it has witnessed. Travelers can utilize the airports in either Frankfurt or Stuttgart and take the train from there to reach Heidelberg.

From the Altstadt to the Heiligengberg Mountain, there is charm all throughout the city. The Hauptstrasse is a popular draw for reputedly being the longest pedestrian shopping street in Germany. It runs across the Altstadt, and the explorer can continue with a journey via the mountain railway that has four stations and connects to the summit of the Königstuhl Mountain. Large academic institutions can be found throughout the city, putting it on par with other academic cities such as Cambridge. Heidelberg University is the country’s oldest and well worth a visit to explore its hundreds of years of history. The mountains offer both historical sites such as the wooden funicular train as well as opportunities for hiking and catching amazing views. Vineyards, breweries, and plenty of pubs and clubs make an excellent itinerary for lovers of the drink. The baroque architecture, allure of the Old Town, and absolute charm of Heidelberg ensure visitors leave feeling fulfilled and refreshed.
