    Asslan v Haus Schiran in Heidelberg

    by Kuznetsov_Sergey Written Mar 22, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: We’ve got an opportunity to visit Heidelberg in August of 2004. That was the trip to the German Shepherd Bundessiegerzuchtschau in Karlsruhe with our Asslan v Haus Schiran.
    That’s why we can tell that thank to Asslan we visited Heidelberg.
    Our visits in many European cities have never happened if our dog Asslan v Haus Schiran and his participating in dog-shows in Germany.

    You can watch my 1 min 03 sec Video Asslan v Haus Schiran in Heidelberg out of my Youtube channel or here on VT.

    Favorite thing: the castle and the castle gardens!

    At the castle there is a large terrace where you can see the old core of Heidelberg and some surrounding areas. Moreover, going down the exit of the castle you can enjoy a good landscape from some big windows.

    The castle gardens are a good place to relax. From there you can see Heidelberg from afar too.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: 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.

    VT EXCURSION TO HEIDELBERG

    by LoriPori Updated Jun 22, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Sunday June 1 2008
    WooHoo! We finally got to visit Heidelberg properly, during a VT group tour led by our wonderful guide Jessica ( JessH) who grew up near this world famous city. Heidelberg is in the German province of Baden-Wurtemberg and lies on the River Neckar. It is located an hour south of Frankfurt and North of Karlsruhe.

    Our excursion of Heidelberg began with a walk through the Main Street - Hauptstrasse, past the beautiful Hotel Zum Ritter. Then on to Marktplatz - site of the Rathaus and Heiliggeistkirche. We then took the Funicular up to Heidelberg Castle. Our first sight was the courtyard with Friedrichsbau and Ottheinrichbau. We visited the German Pharmacy Museum and the Wine Cellar and then on to the Balcony overlooking the city.
    Had dinner in the Marktplatz at Markstube.. Then had to see the "Monkey", the Old Bridge (Alte Brucke) and the Old Bridge Gate (Bruckentor).
    After a very busy day, it was time to get back on the bus to the train station and head back to Karlsruhe.
    I want to take this opportunity to thank Jessica (JessH) for this great excursion. And we can't forget Bernd (Berndl) for all his help on the excursion.
    You guys rock!!!

    THE HEIDELBERG MONKEY

    by LoriPori Written Jun 22, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Towards the end of our excursion, Jessica brought us to the bronze sculpture THE HEIDELBERG MONKEY which is situated west of the Old Bridge Gate. It's supposed to be good luck to rub the round mirror the monkey is holding or perhaps you could just stick your head inside the monkey's head like Stace (Beach_dog ) and Hans ( Waalewiener ) are doing in these pictures.
    The sculpture by Professor Gernot Rumpf was installed there in 1979.

    WONDERFUL VIEWS FROM THE CASTLE

    by LoriPori Written Jun 21, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: One of THE most wonderful views of Heidelberg is from the Castle. I was simply awestruck and to top it off, it was a beautiful, clear sunny day. You could see the Neckar River winding its way along the city - the Heiliggeistkirche - the Old Bridge - Bridge Gate - etc. Hans and I and the others truly enjoyed it up there.

    BRIDGE GATE - BRUCKENTOR

    by LoriPori Written Jun 20, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: 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.

    HAUPTSTRASSE - MAIN STREET

    by LoriPori Updated Jun 20, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Normally crowded with folks walking along the HAUPTSTRASSE or Main Street. Many shops, cafe's and restaurants can be found here, including the Hard Rock Cafe' on Hauptstrasse 142. Main Street stretches from the Bismarckplatz across the Old Town to the Karlstor. Tried to look around the street more, but had to keep up with Jessica and the VT group. What I saw though was quite exciting and it was so nice that it was strictly a pedestrian area.

    HOTEL ZUM RITTER ST. GEORG

    by LoriPori Updated Jun 20, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The HOTEL ZUM RITTER, located on Hauptstrasse 178, was built in 1592 by the French cloth merchant Charles Belier, a Huguenot refugee. This is the only patrician building to survive the city's destruction in 1693. It took its present name in 1705 from the knight St. George whose figure crowns the Renaissance facade. Its beauty and elegance makes it the most artistically valuable town house in Heidelberg.

    by Gypsystravels Updated Mar 20, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Traveling during the Christmas season is a wonderful time to explore this beautiful city. Its a great time to enjoy some gluwhein, local food and purchase some great Christmas gifts.

    You can visit the market from the last week of November to the weekend of Christmas.

    Fondest memory: Walking around enjoying a nice hot cup of Gluwhein, watching the children line up to see Santa Claus.

    I'll have a cup or two of that Gluwhein Santa's The souvernir gluwhein mug Lively market

    Help for the Disabled

    by tini58de Written Jan 14, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: When in Heidelberg you might notice quite a few people in wheelchairs and maybe you notice more hearing impaired persons as in other places! Part of the reason might be that there is a rather huge rehabilitation center in Heidelberg!

    First and last view of Heidelberg

    by tini58de Updated Jan 14, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: This is always my first and my last view of Heidelberg, since it is right across from the Heidelberg central station. Plus it is one of the most modern sights in Heidelberg, erected in the year 2000: a stainless steel sculpture of a sprinting horse. And since it was designed to stand in front of the new building of the "Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG" - a print media company and academy, it is also a printing horse. Combining those two you have the S-Printing Horse!

    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!
