Transport in Heidelberg

by ticktock20

Hi,

I am a student and I'll be moving to Heidelberg to live there for a semester while I study at the University. Can anyone tell me the website where I can find U-Bahn, S-Bahn and bus timetables for the city?

Thanks.

Here you go:

http://www.vrn.de/

You'll get a pdf route map if you click on Heidelberg (schematisch or geographisch) here:

http://www.vrn.de/linienplaene/stadtlinienplaene/

In German, but easy enough to work out. http://babelfish.yahoo.com/ is a good online translator.

http://www.heidelberg.de/servlet/PB/menu/1157992_pcontent_l1/content.html

has English info.

No U-bahn (underground/Tube/Metro) in Heidelberg. Just trams and buses.

Heidelberg is inside the VRN local public transport network.
As a student you can (or have to) buy a VRN Semester-Ticket. EUR 127,00 for the whole semester and covering the complete (really huge) VRN area.

As timetable the DB timetable is easier to use than the VRN timetable.

And select for queries as means of transport "only local transport".

RNV operates the trams and city buses

BRN many regional bus lines

If you're in Heidelberg for just one semester, it's possible you can opt out of the Semesterticket. Don't! It looks expensive at first glance, but it really is a very good deal and allows you to travel in the whole VRN area.

Hi, thankyou so much! Ha, that would be why I didn't see any 'U' signs on googlemaps *silly me*. Cheers!

Depending on what subject you study, and where you live, you might not have to use public transport at all. Heidelberg is not that big a city.

If you study for instance liberal arts (Geisteswissenschaft) and live in the old city (Altstadt), you can just walk.

Most students actually use a bicycle, it's the most pratical and takes you everywhere in the surrounding.

Travel Tips for Heidelberg

Zum Ritter Sankt George.

by Maurizioago

This house is situated in Hauptstrasse at n. 178. It was built in 1592 by a French merchant. It is the only private house which survived the destructruction of Heidelberg in 1693 when the town and the castle were burned down. Today this building houses a hotel.

Visit the Schloss (Castle),...

by cdavidson

Visit the Schloss (Castle), but go with someone that knows something about it. It is far more interesting with a guide than just by yourself. The view of the Schloss at night from across the bridge is amazing. Must see.

Old Town Information

by tini58de

There is a very helpful website with loads of information on the sights in the old town of Heidelberg:

Old Town Information

At the Tourist Information just outside the Hauptbahnhof/Main Station you can usually get this information as a little pamphlet - so check that out as well!

Student pubs

by Sjalen

Heidelberg being a major student city, there is a history of student pubs here of which the most famous (and therefore also touristy) are zum Sepp'l and zum Roten Ochsen which are almost side by side in the Old town. The latter was closed during our visit, but we did get into zum Sepp'l which had all those student signs that you would expect, in this case stolen street signs from all over the world (see third picture) as well as carvings in the wooden walls, photos and a lot of other fun to look at. A very cosy, wooden interior and friendly staff, I guess this place is a lot livelier when in the middle of the student season (we visited during All Saints). The Roten Ochsen next door has more of a "red table cloth" style but is equally German. Both also serve food, although the travel guides call this expensive compared to other eating establishments in town. We never tried.

These Shoes are made for walking....

by tini58de

When we visited in January, it started to snow real hard - so we were glad to have some sweaters and gloves with us!

One thing that kills me every time is cobble stone pavement - be sure to bring good shoes if you plan on walking around a lot!
