Nice Ambiance right on the Hauptstrasse in Heidelberg

We wandered into this restaurant on our first night in Heidelberg and enjoyed a very nice meal of Schnitzel and Spaetzel. They are very nice, speak English, and serve up great German cooking and beer. The ambiance of the place is also nice and welcoming.

There were 70 in our group so this restaurant was able to handle our large party. We did not have a choice of our meal, as it was selected by the head of our tour company. They chose a vegetarian pasta dish that was only fair. It was cooked adequately, but I didn't particular care for the Spinach used in... More

I have been going to this restaurant since I lived in Heidelberg beginning in 1994. The are right on the hauptstrasse (pedestrian street). Their menu is very German with sausages, meats, beer and wines. I always order the flamekuchen which comes out perfect every time. The wait staff are friendly. The atmosphere is cozy as well.

I lived some years in Heidelberg and this is the best pork knuckle in town... I always took my guests there! The place is nice, the location is great for tourists and the pork knuckle is just amazing!

On a day trip to Heidelberg's Christmas Markets we decided to stop in for some desserts and beverages at the Palmbraeu. Our group ordered hot beverages and excellent strudel but all the while eyeing the generous plates of salads, sandwiches and schnitzel specials passing our table from the kitchen to the hungry diners. Everything looked delicious! While we were extremely... More

We searched for a nice placed with German cuisine in the middle of the city and found this little diamond. At first we really weren’t sure if we should enter this restaurant because they had overdone it with the Christmas decoration and the whole entrance was glowing but the restaurant was well visited and looked nice and atmospheric – at...

The portions were so large we could not finish it all. The soup was a meal in its self. The turkey and German noodles was a big hit. They serve pigs knuckles. We did not have any but it really looked good.

Call in on the of-chance on a busy Saturday night. The place looked full but we were comfortably squeezed in, as were the stream of people who came in after us.
