The historic city of Heidelburg is on the River Neckar, not far from where it flows into the River Rhine. The city is located in the Baden-Wurttemberg state in the southwest of Germany. In terms of German states, Baden-Wuttemberg is the third biggest by both population and size. The state's capital is Stuttgart, which is just over 50 miles away, making it within easy driving distance of Heidelburg.
It is worth planning travel arrangements for your trip here, with many things to see and do in and around the surrounding area. If you are looking for independence to travel to neighbouring cities such as Stuttgart, then you might want to consider booking a hire car at Heidelberg Train Station as an option.
Every year this ancient city attracts as many as 3.5 million tourists to its narrow city streets. The city itself only has a population of approximately 145,000 so the locals are not strangers to hosting visitors.
In terms of attractions, Heidelburg features an historic old town that will really give you a feel for the character of the area. It will also give you the chance to take in some of the local sites and stop off at a local restaurant or tavern for local cuisine and perhaps even a local beer.
As for entertainment, there are a number of events and festivals throughout the year, each covering a different theme. If you enjoy classical music then try to plan your trip for the spring time when the city hosts the Heidelberger Fruhling Classical Music Festival. This is a wonderful opportunity to see musicians from all around Germany playing pieces from their rich musical heritage. If you are looking to budget, then cheap car hire at Heidelberg Train Station is a good option.
