City of Romanticism

A vibrant university city, Heidelberg is nestled in the picturesque Neckar river valley. It's considered a jewel among German travel destinations. In this region, the legend-rich Odenwald (a low-mountain range) opens up toward the sprawling Rhine river plains--a densely populated part of the country. Home to the nation's oldest university, established in 1386, Heidelberg has a huge student population from around Europe. It's not only a city of academic excellence, but also a place of diversity and youthful energy. Visitors from around the globe tour the town for its celebrated cityscape, packed with historical attractions and other sights. The ruins of a famous castle here are considered the most important Renaissance structure north of the Alps. Arrange all the small, but important details of your Heidelberg trip itinerary using our Germany online trip planner.
