For a true fairytale holiday, Heidelberg is the place to be. Widely considered one of the most beautiful cities in Germany, it’s also a lively student town and home to Heidelberg University, one of the oldest academic institutions in the world. In the Old Town, picture-perfect coffee shops sit beside traditional houses and lively market shops. Presiding over all of this are the sandstone ruins of Heidelberg Castle, perched atop the Königstuhl hill. With two hotels in the city centre, including Leonardo Hotel Heidelberg Walldorf and Leonardo Hotel Heidelberg, Leonardo can offer you the perfect Heidelberg hotel from which to discover this magical city.
Get your bearings
There’s no better way to get to know Heidelberg than by spending a morning in the “Altstadt” (or Old Town). Running from Karlstor to Bismarckplatz, it’s the kind of place where narrow cobbled alleyways lead to lively market squares, with stylish boutiques and family-run fruit markets in between. At Marktplatz, admire the gothic church or simply relax with a cup of coffee at one of the many market square cafes.
The red stone ruins of Heidelberg Palace are some of the most visited in Germany, and it’s not hard to see why. The buildings are a wonderful mix of German architecture set 300 feet above the city, with breathtaking views over Heidelberg. Inside, don’t miss the impeccably restored Pharmacy Museum, then visit the charming gardens, complete with sculptures, mazes and waterfalls.
While you’re there
In summer, pack a picnic and head for Neckarwiese, a popular park on the river’s north bank. Little ones will love splashing around in the water playground, while grown-ups can admire uninterrupted views of Heidelberg Palace. As the sun drops, join the city’s student population by going for dinner and drinks at one of the pubs or bars on Untere Straße.
