Day trips from Heidelberg

My daughter and I will be in the Heidelberg area for 5 days and would like some suggestions for day trips from the Heidelberg area. We would even consider spending a night in another location.

When? Will you use public transport or do you have a car?

the already mentioned Neckar valley, e.g. the 4 castles in Neckarsteinach




with it's cathedral *) and the Technik Museum



the Residence *)



nice old town and esp. in spring nice botanical garden and parks.


*) UNESCO world heritage sites

local public transport / VRN area


for 2 persons the 24 hour mini group ticket "Ticket 24 PLUS" is the best deal. If bought on a Saturday not just valid 24 hours, but till 3am of Monday. Price depends on the number of zones covered. The price for the complete VRN area is EUR 18,50.

Mannheim (more than twice as big as Heidelberg) has some interesting museums and is good for tourist free shopping (Heidelberg's old town is a quite touristic).

If you are looking for a half-day excursion, you could also consider the Schwetzingen Castle and Gardens. The gardens are the big draw. There are immaculate formal gardens and wilder "English" gardens, with follies. After looking round the gardens (allow 2-3 hours) you can have a bite to eat on the market square. Then back to Heidelberg for the afternoon.

All the best
