Full description
Enjoy a morning tour to the romantic city of Heidelberg situated on the River Neckar, one of the most beautiful cities in Germany. It's simply magical. Visit the world-famous ruins of Heidelberg Castle, a stunning combination of architectural styles stretching from the Gothic period to the Renaissance. Stroll through the expansive courtyard and admire the views from the imposing terrace. Marvel at one of the largest wine barrels in the world. You then wander through the medieval town center. Here you will see the Old Bridge, the Karlstor, and the Church of the Holy Spirit. Admire the Haus zum Ritter (Knight's house) with its magnificent Renaissance façade and discover the old narrow lanes with their half-timbered houses. Heidelberg is also home to Germany’s oldest university and is full of interesting stories. And if you still have some time to spare, you can philosophize on Philophenweg (Philosophers' Way) or discover the excellent regional wines – the two go together quite nicely.

  • Transfer to Heidelberg

Had a wonderful day trip with our guide Micheal and driver Nico. Michael kept us busy with his narration about the history of Frankfurt, Heidelberg and Germany in general (including details about the architecture, culture, arts, technology and more). Once in Heidelberg we had a tour of the castle and the apothecary museum, and then we were given a free time to explore on our own. Highly recommended!

The tour was very good, castle is very interesting & picturesque. I especially enjoyed the Museum of Pharmacy in the Castle. Plenty of photo opportunities all through the tour. Free time in the Old Town was also very good. Lunch was disappointing, a cheese sandwich, better if you eat in the Old Town. Our guide could have been better, he was not very interactive, just wanted to do all the talking. Our small bus was not really adequate for 8 people + driver; two of us were squashed in the front seat with driver.

Our guide George and the driver Nicko (if i'm not mistaken) is awesome! He told us a lot of story and history about the church, palace, about the wine cellar and also about frankfurt. He is very generous too and can suggest you best spot for a picture. Free time is also enough, not too short and not too long. You should look for George as your tour guide if you want to take this tour. Don't forget to give some tips too for appreciation
