While being rich in history, Heidelberg feels carefully preserved rather than dated. Great care has gone towards keeping the city romantic and quaint, with a storybook setting. Its many footpaths, crossing bridges and cobblestone streets create a fairy tale experience that is unequalled by any other European town. Not only is the city center easy to navigate on foot, but around every corner awaits a new discovery. The ruins of Schloss Heidelberg, a captivating 13th-century castle, and the university, which is the oldest university in Germany, gives the city an ancient Grecian feel. To complete the experience, put on your walking shoes and stroll along Philosophenweg (Philosopher's Walk), one of the longest pedestrian streets in Europe, where the Nacker River offers clarity to the most profound thoughts. Heidelberg captivates visitors with its wondrous cityscape and bustling nightlife. Since it plays host to many students, the city center has plenty accommodation on offer with convenient public transport available. A quick walk through the city will leave you mesmerized by the ancient Gothic and Renaissance architecture, while showcasing the finest German cuisine from local eateries.
