The City


Heidelberg is considered to be one of the most beautiful cities in Germany. A city of romanticism, it inspired writers and poets like J.W. Goethe. With the river Neckar, the hills surrounding the city and its picturesque Old Town, Heidelberg has something to offer for everybody. It is a city of science with its University being the oldest in Germany. Find out more about Heidelberg here.
