RIVER NECKAR - the bridges, nearby streets and views


Alte Brücke, or Karl-Theodor-Brücke, the most famous bridge of Heidelberg. It was built in 1788.


The gate to Karl-Theodor-Brücke, with Heiliggeistkirche, Altstadt and the hills in the background.






The luxorious mansions on the north part of River Neckar seen from Alte Brücke.






















Close-up of the castle.


Marstall. At Neckarstaden, the road next to River Neckar. This 1510 renaissance building is 135m long and contains a hotel and a trendy café today.










Stadthalle, a renaissance congress and culture center from 1903.












The funicular that goes up to the top of the Königstuhl hill, where you can find a TV tower and a TV mast. Originally I planned to go up and see the spectacular views, but I had too less time, spending one half day in Heidelberg. The Königstuhl hill, where the castle lies, is 567m high!

I'd been in the city once and it was indeed beautiful.
The old castle up the hill gives you the city's panorama which
is really amazing.

Thanks for the tour. Pity you didn't have very nice weather. The last time I went to Heidelberg it was also pretty grey and mixed with a lot of rain. But I've been luckier on earlier occasions.

Actually, I think it is worth going inside the castle, though it's nothing too great, it is still interesting. On the other hand, it is best to take the funicular just to the castle level and not to the top. The view from the top is nothing special, and there are long waits on the funicular. Once up there, all I really remember was a really horrible run down take away place.

But taking the funicular just to the castle level is worth it, and then walking down the tracks around the castle.

By the way, as far as I know, these silver tubes are supposed to represent printing drums. I had to laugh when the lady tried to stop you taking photos ;O) I am trying to imagine what horrors she (or her management) believe you may be bestowing upon her firm. A printing company that doesn't like images taken Glad you managed to get the shot

Thanks for all replies! Yes, it's really ironic that I was not allowed to take photos inside a printing firm (I think it's a school too?) and I am in the printing/graphic branch myself.

I think the weather didn't matter since I think the grey sky fits well with Heidelberg's mysterious look.
The reason I didn't go inside the castle is because I visited Darmstadt the same day. I walked up the stairs to the castle (feet aching), I couldn't find the funicular, or at least I didn't want to pay for it.
