My favourite parts of this museum are the rooms in the old palace building facing onto the Haupstraße, and the archeology section. Heidelberg was one a large Roman settlement, and there are lots of original artifacts, as well as excellent context and displays. The English...More

We found the restaurant in a court yard of the museum. It was separate from a busy crowded walking tourist street. The design and setting were classical, old-aged, and charming. We like the ambience and dishes.

The food was manageable, although a bit pricey. But the service deserves the distinction of worse in town. The waiters are slow and careless: one of them SAT FOR A SMOKE with a couple of friends in one of the tables.... during his shift! He...More

I found this an interesting museum, though when I went everything was in German. Perhaps what really struck me was the elements that showed the Roman presence in the area.

This is one of the better museums we visited while in Germany. This is a large collection but a 1 1/2 hour time investment will leave you with the feeling that you've covered what you wanted to see. Something for everyone!

No parking directly around the museum, it is pedestrianised. Parking further out is available and it is easy to walk.
