Exploring Heidelberg and its surroundings
You will find a wide range of interesting and unique city tours on offer in Heidelberg. Whether you are on your own or in a group, experienced tour guides will be on hand to tell you about the city's history and recount stories about buildings and places that bear witness to past centuries and still shape the contours of today’s Heidelberg.
The walking tour of the old town introduces you to the romantic side of Heidelberg with its picturesque lanes and squares. Groups preferring a more compact and comfortable way of covering Heidelberg's sights can opt for a city bus tour with castle visit. And for a very special experience, why not take to two wheels and try a City Safari on a Segway? It will be an unforgettable experience!
For groups, an exciting alternative to classic city tours are theme tours or special tours. These include costume tours and whodunit tours, a university tour and even a tour with historical street musicians. Horror fans can listen to a Heidelberg night guard recount bloodcurdling stories of witches, hangmen and bloodthirsty robbers who plied their trade in the alleyways of medieval Heidelberg – places that are still said to be haunted.
Boat trips on the Neckar are a unique experience. Be they via pedal boat, with the “White Fleet”, the solar catamaran or with the Neckar ferry “Liselotte”: the panorama of Heidelberg and the landscape of the Neckar valley are particularly impressive viewed from the river.
