This place in the heart of the old town is really large and beautiful. The buildings around give this place a romantic mood. Unfortunately it's also the heart of tourism in this big touristic town in Germany... So it loose a bit the local charm...More

Walking around, this colorful market is nice. Experience the buzz around, go into the Lindt chocolate store and choose from an array of chocolates is a pleasure.

I was actually in Germany in 2006 and enjoyed this city. Heidelberg is a fun and interesting city to visit, beautiful for pictures and great for activities (and steps, ha!).

This old square and outlaying streets is the main thing to visit in Heidleberg. There were not very many vendors in the qsquare that I wanted to shop from and not that many "local" handicrafts. It is a nice place to stroll for a few...More
