Heidelberg is known as a university-town in Germany as it has the oldest German university: Heidelberg University, which was founded in the 14th century. But beside this well-known fact, Heidelberg is also famous as the city on the Neckar river, boasting the old town square on one side and the mountain on the other side. Another tourist-attracting place of Heidelberg is the red-sandstone castle ruins of Heidelberg castle, which gives its visitors a paranomic view over the the city.

  • Heildelberg’s streets: if you wonder how an old town blended with modern architecture in Germany looks like, then Heidelberg would give you a perfect picture.

  • Heidelberg Castle: there is a small fee for entering the castle, but it is definitely worth paying a visit to it. You must spend from 1 to 2 hours here to discover all the beautiful corner of the ruins.



From the entrance gate you just need to walk up for 1-2 minutes to reach the 360-panorama view of Heidelberg.
