Heidelberg Castle

No trip to Heidelberg would be complete without a visit to the castle. Dominating the city from the brow of the hill, the castle offers breathtaking views over the old town and the River Rhine. The castle is host to the Schlossfestspiele castle pageant and also the fantastic firework displays that illuminate the castle several times a year. Built over a period spanning three centuries, the castle developed from being a simple medieval fortress into a splendid Renaissance palace. A royal structure nestled amid bucolic settings, the castle is one of the most spectacular sights to see in Heidelberg.

Church of the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit Church at Marktplatz in the center of Old Town is one of the few buildings that survived the fire in 1693. The church was constructed in the first half of the 15th Century and was also used as a last resting place for electors. Murals, stemming from the middle ages, are most impressive. The church's gallery was formerly used as the university library, the Bibliotheca Palatina. This famous collection of scriptures and prints was stolen in the Thirty Years War and brought to the Vatican, where it still resides.

Botanischer Garten der Universität Heidelberg

Botanischer Garten der Universität Heidelberg is a stunning botanical garden which offers visitors an insight into the world of plants. In the greenhouses, you will find a variety of plants including orchids, cacti, and succulents among others.
