Heidelberg- the city on the Neckar River is a popular destination for tourists from all over the world, as well as for scientists. The electoral residence city is known not only for its renowned university, but also for its picturesque old town and castle ruins.
The city of Heidelberg was officially founded in the 12th century, but its history dates back to Celtic and Roman times. Since the city is one of the few major cities in Germany that was not destroyed in World War II, there is still a lot of historical sights to discover here.
For example, the “Karl-Theodor-Brücke”, better known as the “Alte Brücke”, which connects the two parts of the city across the Neckar River, is particularly characteristic of the cityscape.
Those who first want to get an overview of the city from a distance should visit the “Königstuhl”. The highest mountain in the Odenwald and the Bergstrasse offers an excellent view of Heidelberg, which can be enjoyed on various walking routes. In addition, the Heidelberg Castle stands on its slope, which you should not neglect on your city trip. Not without reason, the ruin is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Europe. The old castle was stylized to the epitome of bygone eras and offers the right flair for fairy tale atmosphere with the right escort lady at her side. In the dress of her choice, her escort date will become a stunning princess in no time.
Heidelberg looks idyllic not only from a distance, even if you are in its center you can find one or the other pearl of the city. Directly on the market square, for example, is the Heiliggeistkirche (Church of the Holy Spirit), built of red Neckar Valley sandstone and designed in the Gothic style. During opening hours, you can climb the 38-meter-high tower here and enjoy the panoramic view of the old town.
In summer, the Heidelberg Castle Festival takes place annually, where you can enjoy open-air theater around the castle. Those interested in theater should also make a note of the Heidelberg Stückemarkt. This is an annual playwriting competition, as well as a theater festival, where especially young authors have the opportunity to demonstrate their skills.
Heidelberg has a lot to offer. A walk through the old town alone is a sensual experience. The charm of the old buildings quickly gives rise to romantic feelings. With the right escort lady at your side, these can also be lived out in every conceivable way.
