Day 1:   Arrival in Heidelberg

During the day you will arrive in Heidelberg. Enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of this student city with heart. Besides the famous castle, the many old alleys and the oldest university in Germany, the name Heidelberg also stands for a very lively, creative cultural scene. The castle of Heidelberg, landmark of the city, lies about 70 meters above the Neckar. The ruins of the castle and the princely wine cellar, which houses the world's largest barrel with a capacity of over 200,000 litres, are truly impressive. You are welcome to explore this area on a guided tour of the castle (optional). Our guide will first take you through the romantic old town, show you the most beautiful corners of Heidelberg and introduce you to the most important sights. Look forward to the special flair in Heidelberg's alleys and discover the beauty of the Kurpfälzischen churches, the old town squares, the oldest university in Germany, the old bridge etc.. Heidelberg has the longest shopping mile in Germany - how about a stroll through the numerous shops and a souvenir for those who stayed at home?
