We never had the time to properly visit the city, but we stayed over twice as it happened to be convenient. Heidelberg definitely deserves more and I hopefully will manage soon to give it more than a couple of hours.
still even with so little time here our experience.
if you are coming by car, a good solution is Eazy Hostel which is located right outside Heidelberg. the place is new and very comfortable. Is the second time we come back to it. I would not recommend it if you plan to stay longer in the city though.
âBefore long drives a good breakfast makes a big difference, so we were very happy to discover the breakfasts at ExtraBlatt. You have all you can eat breakfast till 12:00 for 9â¬ in the week and for 11â¬ or so. You can see some pictures of the breakfast below.
If you don't have time to stay, just walk a bit around, you'll see how cute the city is. Nicely decorated streetlamps
Very cute bars, with a cozy feeling
Great view over the castle
small details here and there
Opened in 1788, the Karl Theodor Bridge (Alte Bruecke), is a stone bridge in Heidelberg with a beatiful gate on the old city's side
Once at the gate on its left hand side you can find some metal statues. "It is believed that if you touch the fingers of the Bridge Monkey it would ensure your return to Heidelberg, touch the mirror for wealth and touching the mice will ensure fertility." (Source)
Enjoy the visit through the city
