Walking to Stift Neuberg

by Annette55

How long does it take from Heidelberg?

Stift NeubUrg?
It's in the outskirts of Heidelberg and obviously it depends where in Heidelberg you start walking. No more than two hours, I'd say.

Travel Tips for Heidelberg

Old Town

by Gypsystravels

Old town is quite small and an easy way to see the city is by walking. We decided to start our walk up to Heidelberg Castle, then make our way back down to old town. The Christmas Market was in full force and we walked around checking out all the Christmas stalls. Walking around in search for a special "football" scarf for someone back home. I enjoyed walking through the Christmas market and looking at all the Christmas ornaments...I brought a few back home with me.

Digitally walk through old Heidelberg

by JessH

This map provided by the Heidelberg Tourism Board is excellent, and even though I'm a "local" I still use it!

This particular link I am sharing with you describes the locations of all the major and minor sights, statues, historic buildings, etc. in the old town:
--> simply zoom into certain parts on the map by clicking on the magnifying glass with the "+" symbol, draw a square with your mouse and that section will be enlarged. Then "walk" down the Haupstrasse (main street) by using the arrows on the border of the map.

I usually start my walk at the Bismarkplatz (this is where I get off the tram) and walk down the street towards the Heilig Geist Kirche (Holy Ghost church), with the Neckar river to my left. This map is a fantastic way to explore Old Heidelberg before your trip. The map doesn't give detailed information about the nature of certain buildings, so I recommend this link for fantastic information:

There is also a search feature on the left side of the map. Enter the address of e.g.: your Hotel, and the map will show you the sights closest to you.

On the southern end of the Old Bridge is its medieval BRIDGE GATE or BRUCKENTOR with its 28 metres high double cylindrical towers, which were once part of the medieval town fortification. The western tower houses three low dungeon rooms and the eastern tower, a spiral staircase which goes up the archway and over the small apartment in the middle.

"Why and What is everyone chewing?" PART 2 of 2

More German specialities: Note that Southern German cuisine differs greatly from Northern German cuisine.

> "Knoedel" - Dumplings from Southern Germany. You'll find dumplings made from pototato (Kartoffelknoedel) and I like making dumplings from bread (Semmelknoedel).

> "Frikadellen" - meat patties / balls that are heavily seasoned with fresh herbs, fried in a pan and traditionally served with bean salad or potato salad.

> "Spanferkel" – a whole spit roast suckling pig.

> We invented Aspirin, the athletic sneaker, the MP3 File, and the Haribo GUMMIBEARS! Visit the "Baerenshop" near the Holy Ghost church for more varieties of the famous gelatine treat.

> "Vesper" or "Brotzeit" - the cold meal: you don't always need a hot meal to fill you up. Germans enjoy "bread time" and a "Vesperplatte" is served in most German restaurants. This will typically consist of breads, butter, various meats and cheeses, pickled gherkins, salads and eggs.

> The "Schnitzel" - adopted from Austria. The "Wiener Schnitzel" is the original Schnitzel, also well-known & loved in Southern Germany. This is a thin piece of veal, breaded & fried, and topped-off with lemon accompanied by French fries. Pork Schnitzel and Turkey Schnitzel are also widely available.

> "Spaetzle" - famous for the regions of Schwaben & Baden: These chunky noodles are "the star" of our cuisine. The dough is made with lots of eggs, and they are extremely filling but so tasty! Usually served with a goulash, stew and lots of gravy. Further South, the speciality dish is "Kaesespaetzle"... baked with grated cheese!

> "Beer = Bier!": German brewers adhere to the Bavarian Reinheitsgebot (purity requirement) dating from 1516. There are approx. 1300 breweries in Germany producing over 5000 brands of beer.... enough said, CHEERS!

Climbing the stairs up to the castle!

by tini58de

There are 315 steps leading up to the castle - do I need to say anything else?? Good shoes!!!
Although there is an alternative route, I would always prefer to take the stairs: it is much faster and it makes you feel so good, when you see the 300 - mark painted on the steps!
