Arrival + City Tour
After arriving in Heidelberg, your chauffeur will welcome you at the airport or train station gate and transport you to the hotel. After hotel check-in, your tour guide will take you on a sightseeing tour through the oldest university town in Germany and without doubt one of the most beautiful places in the country: On your walk through the historical centre of Heidelberg, you will see the Old Bridge, the trail “Philosophenweg”, the old university assembly hall, the stables, the town hall, the knight, as well as the university library. Today`s highlight will be your visit of the Heidelberg castle. The symbol of this town, which is enthroned on the hill overlooking narrow alleys and picturesque old town rooftops, belongs to the most famous ruins of Germany. For ages, the complex of the castle was a symbol of rise and fall of the area called Palatinate and a source of inspiration for many artists during romanticism.
After a rich breakfast, we recommend a 40-minute cruise on the river Neckar where you will get some very nice views of the castle and scenic Heidelberg . Afterwards, your driver is awaiting you for the transfer back to the airport or train station. You will return home with many lasting impressions of Heidelberg.
