Heidelberg: Attractions and more...
The Heidelberg Castle stands just outside the main city and is easily accessible by foot or by car. Today, this red sandstone structure is a ruin and only some parts have been restored; but it is still an impressive sight. The Hall of the Mirrors, the Thick Tower and the Wine Vat building stand out amongst the ruins. The Palace of Friedrich IV is one of the restored structures in the castle and houses a gallery of portraits of the rulers, a bell tower and the royal apartments.
In Altstadt (old town) the main square and the town hall warrant a visit, especially during market days when the square comes alive with the vendors’ fresh produce. Heiliggeistkirche, a large Gothic church, and some old mansions and medieval houses are the other attractions.
The towns of Neckarsteinhach and Hirschhorn in the Neckar valley can be easily explored by taking boat cruises on the river Neckar. They make for good day trips from Heidelberg.
