I thoroughly relished in the charm of Heidelberg by spending an entire day in the Alstadt - lots of tourists, but very interesting and fun.

Nice place to stroll around. Really typical of an old German town with lovely old buildings and lots of history. Some nice pubs and restaurants to sit and relax.

I loved roaming around the old town,Altstadt.There are so many bars,restaurants and gelato shops to choose from.You can hear live music from buskers performing in the streets,students swarming around and just surrounded by history.Take your time to get to know the layout of old town by just walking in different directions.Trams and busses are available but so much more can be seen on foot.

We have been travelling around southern Germany for three weeks. Baden-Baden, Lindau, Würtzburg, Bamberg, Schwabish Häll and Rothenburg o.d. Tauber are all much nicer places to visit than Heidelberg.
Unless, of course, you prefer litter, dirty streets, beggars, graffiti and lots of tourist shops.

Heidelberg is a beautiful old city. There is much to see. I was there for just one day. That is not nearly enough time. Just the castle took most my limited time. I did not see much of the Altstadt. Plenty of places to eat. Many great beer choices. Be sure to walk across the bridge.
