Exclusive city views
Webcams installed at various vantage points in Heidelberg offer an unusual perspective on the city.
Heidelberg Old Town webcam: This is located on the northern bank of the river Neckar and offers a superb view of the Old Town and Heidelberg Castle, the Old Bridge and Gate, the Church of the Holy Spirit and the Cable Car. You can click on any of these sights to find out more information online.
Old Bridge webcam: This webcam shows the Old Bridge and river Neckar and enables river water levels to be monitored. Heidelberg's idyllic position on the Neckar means that when the snow thaws in spring or following heavy rain, the Old Town can be prone to flooding, with the cellars of the historic buildings filling up with water. The Heidelberg city authorities keep a careful eye on water levels 24/7.
Bahnstadt webcams: Two webcams provide pictures of Heidelberg's new Bahnstadt district: the SkyLabs webcam which shows the campus, complete with the district's biggest office and laboratory block – the striking Skylabs building. And the second webcam shows the new residential area with its childcare center.
Peregrine webcam: This webcam focuses on the tower of Heidelberg's Church of the Holy Spirit, where a pair of peregrine falcons nests every year. Only activated in spring, the webcam offers an exclusive glimpse of the birds' nest.
