  • Heidelberg is both a charming, historic town snuggled in between hills and river and vibrant, international city. Enjoy a stroll down the longest pedestrian shopping street in Europe, or take a hike up to Philospher's Way. Take in the beautiful mix of renaissance, Baroque and modern architecture scattered throughout the Old Town, or enjoy a beverage in one of many modern beer gardens. Whatever time of year you choose to visit Heidelberg, be sure to take in the special events sponsored by the city year-round, such as the Christmas Markets during the cold winter months, the music festivals in the spring, the Castle Illuminations throughout the summer, or Heidelberger Herbst, an enormous fusion of flea-markets, music and art exhibitions, food and beverages, a perfect way to spend a crisp, autumn day.
