Heidelberg, a city guide
Ascend by funicular railway to Heidelberg Castle and enjoy the breathtaking panoramas to be had from its terraces and a glass of locally produced wine from its cellars. Its university was established in the 14th Century making it Germany’s oldest University city. Once the haunt of philosophers, who walked the nearby hillside trails to think, Heidelberg has often been dubbed Germany’s intellectual capital.
