Attractions and Places to Visit in Heidelberg

Home to the oldest university in Germany, Heidelberg was hit hard during 17th-century wars and rebuilt in the 18th century with baroque buildings. For a pleasant walk, stroll through the historic city center's Gothic streets. Be sure to take in Heidelberg Castle, the symbolic heart of the city; Alte Brucke, a beautiful 18th-century bridge; and the Student Jail. Built as long ago as the 16th century, it was used to keep mischievous students off the streets for three days to a month at a time. And they say Penn State is the number-one party school!
From fabulous art exhibitions at the City Art Gallery, discovering the city’s history at the Museums and Garden to seeing chart topping bands, whatever your mood, Heidelberg has an attraction or activity to delight your senses.
