I would head down to the river to a bench by the old bridge to watch the river traffic, ducks and swans and enjoy the view over to the philisophenweg. Most pleasant.

The river adds to the already amazing old world charm of the city. Its wonderful way to get views of the city and admire the magnificent castle of Heidelberg.
