by mojo1980

Hi there

I will be arriving in Heidelberg on 15 Sept evening. May I know if there are any recommended hostels which are cheap and available?

It seems that the accomodations in Heidelberg is quite expensive.

Thank you

When she was in college, our daughter stayed at a hotel that was near the zoo. It can't be that bad or expensive, or she wouldn't have done it.

All I know is that she was awaken in the morning by the sound of lions' roaring.

Thank you all for your replies. Somehow the above site is unavailable.

I tried to apply the following hotel with this website: http://www.hotel-engelhorn.de/html/how_to_find_us.htm

Anyone has experience with this hotel?

Re: Hostel recommendations

I don't know this hotel, but it looks nice. It is ,however, not in Heidelberg and not the cheap hostel you were asking for in your original posting. If you're willing to spend about 100 Euro, I'm sure you'll find a place in Heidelberg itself. Do you have a car?
You can check www.hrs.de and type in 100 Euro price limit in Heidelberg. You'll see lots of hotels below this limit.

I forgot: If you're in the area for business, then this hotel is a very good choice. But if you're here for sight-seeing in Heidelberg, then it's better to stay in Heidelberg.

Travel Tips for Heidelberg

The University

by Polly74

On June 24, 1712, the university's chancellor Prof. Dr. Melchior Kirchner laid the foundation-stone for the "Old University", as the building is called today. The architect was Johann Adam Breunig of Mainz. The "Alte Aula" (Old Assembly Hall) built by the architect Josef Durm was added in 1885 shortly before the university's 500th anniversary. The artist Ferdinand Keller created the painting of the front wall, depicting the arrival of the Greek goddess of wisdom, Pallas Athene, in Heidelberg. Bronze figures on the right and left symbolize the call and genius of science. The ceiling holds paintings depicting the four university faculties, i.e. philosophy, medicine, law and theology. Another object of interest is to be found at the University Square in front of the building: The "Löwenbrunnen", as this fountain is called, is crowned by a lion symbolizing the power of the Palatinate.

The fountain consists of planes and arches symbolises the planets and a large globe is the earth which is so huge signifies man attachment to it.

THE CHRISTMAS MARKET: German tradition at its best

by JessH

Christmas is one of those topics that make me exceptionally happy & even a bit "snobby" about being German: We do the best Christmas in the world!!! It's about family & friends, traditions & togetherness, and they are not a mere expression of the customary rampant commercialism. Don't believe me? Come & see for yourself! You simply haven't "lived" Christmas until you've been to a German Xmas market!
The annual "Weihnachtsmarkt" takes place in the old town. This year's dates are: 24th Nov - 22nd Dec 2010.
We really enjoy the smell of freshly roasting Maroni (chestnuts), laughing children on the historic merry-go-round, the sizzling of Bratwurst (1/2 metre long sausage!) on the grills, and of course the steaming pots full of gorgeous Gluehwein (mulled wine).
NOTE: a mulled wine costs 2,40- You can either bring the cup back & receive 20 cent "Pfand" back, or keep the cup as a souvenir :-)

Daily from 11:00am to 09:00pm the following are THE places for pre-Xmas joy:

> Universitaetsplatz = University Square:
Over 80 stands selling food, crafts, live displays of glass blowing, etc. plus the century-old merry-go-round with organ music. This is the main Xmas area.

> Kornnmarkt (Madonna statue):
Live wood carving, basket weaving and jewellery demonstrations. Here you'll also find a small barn with donkeys & sheep for the kids to see & snuggle (poor freezing hooves!)

> Marktplatz, around the Herkulesbrunnen (fountain):
More wooden stalls with food, drink and entertainmetn. This is where you will find the large Heidelberg Xmas-Pyramide, spinning slowly in circles and containing figures from the city's legends & history, such as the Homo Heidelbergensis, Kurfürst Friedrich V. and Elisabeth Stuart, Liselotte of the Pfalz, Robert Bunsen, the "Student Prince" and of course wine-loving Perkeo. Here you will also find Santa's Grotto for the kids.

> CHRISTMAS ON ICE!
From 24.11.2010 - 09.01.2011 you can enjoy the open-air ice skating rink (rental available).

Heidelberg's flair, remaining from the 70s...

by JessH

Of course the main street through Heidelberg's old town is the city's main attraction and is crammed full with shops, restaurants, cafes and street vendors. But if you need a little break and are open for some alternative & unusual things, take a step aside and walk down to the Heumarkt / Untere Strasse.

Here, there aren't any crowds. There is more shade & relief from the summer's heat and in winter you don't have to dodge so many people on slippery ice; it is quieter and there are some real hidden gems that you wouldn't find amongst the "tourist hot spots":

WELL, now that you're here:
> Enjoy some lunch or refreshments at a smaller, older and more personal cafe / deli.
> Discover some of Heidelberg's "Hippie Shops" where you can find anything from Indian Incense, to Thai silk, African furniture, fantastic alternative music and so much more.
> You'll also come across small bookstores and old, family-run confectionaries.
> There is also a lady with a lovely shop selling healing crystals, spiritual books, etc. and she also offers personal life coaching sessions, meditations, etc. I really like her and always stop-by and say "hello" when I'm in town. (her shop is right next to the fountain statue, see picture)

It's amazing how close this little gem of a street is to all of the hustle & bustle of the old town, yet the local residents aren't much disturbed by all of that craziness because hardly any of the "people traffic" ever filters down here. To me, these little streets are the "essence" of Heidelberg's spirit.

--> How to get here?
This is very close to the University Platz (between the Hauptstrasse and the Old Bridge / Neckar River) If you are walking on the Hauptstrasse towards the Kornmarket & Church, turn left when you see the shop "Belobene" & "Starbucks" (Now, listen to me: walk straight PAST Starbucks and have a coffee in one of the nearby family-owned cafes!)
