Cityguide Heidelberg

The historic town next to the Neckar

Heidelberg is one of the most popular (and one of the most beautiful) travel destinations in Germany, not only for tourists, but also us at! That's why Heidelberg is an integral part of our long-distance bus world. But behind the scenes, Heidelberg has much more to offer than the usual tourist facade. We help you with the best information and nightlife tips for Heidelberg.

Staying in Heidelberg!

From the Heidelberger Bahnhof you are in a few steps in Steffis Hostel Heidelberg. From 18 euros in the dormitory, you will hear nice backpacker stories from nice people. If you want to enjoy a great view of the Heidelberg Castle at breakfast, then you are in the right place at Lotte, a backpacker's hostel.

Sightseeing in Heidelberg!

After a relaxed arrival, you will be greeted by palm trees right at the main station (let yourself be surprised what that means;)). From Heidelberg main station it is not far to the old town. Next to it, you will see the famous landmark of the city: the Heidelberg Castle, which is definitely worth a visit! If you made your way to the castle, you should not miss the view of the city!

After that, it is time to cross the Neckar! The best way to do that is with the famous Old Bridge, where the obligatory photo with the Bridge Monkey can not be missing. Once across the Neckar, you will find the Philosophers' Path on the way through the most beautiful and most expensive residential areas of Heidelberg. Especially in summer, the steep path on the mountain directly opposite the Heidelberg Castle with a great view of the city is a real sight.

Also nice: a detour to the Theater Street, where you can watch the samples through the glassed-in walls of the theater.

Eating in Heidelberg!

Right in the old town of Heidelberg in the Marstall-Mensa of Ruprecht-Karls-Universität you can find a cheap and really good meal. The refectory, which has been honored several times as the "Mensa of the Year", also has a beer garden for warm days. Then go to the Bridges Road, where you should get the best ice cream in the city (always following the line!). If you like it cozy, you can then go on to the "Untere", as the locals call the pub mile in the old town, the Untere Straße. And for all those who still do not have enough: In the Vater Rhein, you can enjoy spaghetti and other delicious meals at fair student prices!

Celebrating in Heidelberg!

A piece of France, the charm of old wood furniture - that's the Max Bar. Here, after a few drinks, you can start into the night. There is always something going on in the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan area, especially in Heidelberg! The legendary Karlstorbahnhof regularly hosts parties and concerts, which is exactly THE location to enjoy long nights out in Heidelberg. In the Tangente (short: T-Club), there is always something going on and it will cost you no entry! The oldest student jazz club in Germany, the Cave 54, also hosts a jam session every Tuesday. So, trust yourself to the instruments!
