Tour description

My Leitmotiv for this tour is simple: How has the city of Heidelberg been able to become the mythical city that it is, and what great and small wonders does this myth consist of?

We will not only talk about the palace , but also about the university , students, romanticism , princes and princesses, historical rivalries and Germany in general.

The tour:

The route focuses on the center of the old town and therefore is not long, approximately 2 km. Our tour lasts approximately between 1 hour 45 minutes and 2 hours.

We pass by outstanding places such as:

  • the old bridge
  • University
  • The different churches of the city
  • Beautiful views of the palace

...and many more places, perhaps less known but also very interesting.

Walking with me through this picturesque open-air museum, I hope to give you an entertaining and personal tour, which will also be rich in ideas on how to make the most of your stay. And of course, I will always be attentive to your questions.

Are you coming to study for an Erasmus, master or doctorate? Do not hesitate to come to the tour, I will give you a lot of information to improve your stay in this beautiful university city.

    The monkey statue is next to the old bridge. You will recognize me thanks to the rainbow bag, you can also see me in my profile picture. How to get? It will not be difficult for them to find the old bridge. An important bus station is the Universitätsplatz, a five-minute walk away. It can also be accessed from Bismarckplatz, where the tram runs, in 20 minutes on foot following the River Neckar or Hauptstraße in an easterly direction.

How much does this tour cost?

Free tours do not have a set price, instead, each person gives the guru at the end of the tour the amount that he or she considers appropriate (these usually range from €10 to $50 depending on satisfaction with the tour).
