The Old Town of Heidelberg starts from Sofienstrasse and brings you to the castle. In the middle there is the University Area (the oldest university in Germany), the main shopping street (Hauptstrasse) and it includes to famous Karl-Theodor-Bridge...more

Great place to visit and wander whether you days or simply a few hours. Always a hive of activity which makes it seem busy. A great selection of gasthaus and restaurants. There is always something new to see or do. If you are not familiar...More
This place is what everbody imagines as the typical historic German look. However and although there is a lot of touristic activity going on, it has all its genuine charm. In summer it is packed with terrasses serving bier and local food. In Christmas you...More
During our visit the old town was crowded with people enjoying mulled wine or hot chocolate with friends. There was food galore all of it very inviting but very few places to sit or even stand near a table. There were many stand and eat...More

I'm not 100% sure but you are likely to find attractions such as Heidelberg Castle open (at least limited hours) on Easter Monday. We were there on Dec 26th and while it is a public holiday in Germany (St. Stephens Day) and most of the businesses were closed, some restaurants were open in the old town and a few tourist shops. To expand further it is generally not permitted to sell commercial goods on Sundays and public holidays.
As I mentioned, we were able to tour Heidelberg Castle on a public holiday so if that is one of the attractions you want to visit on Easter Monday, I would just double-check their website. The same for any other attraction you might be interested in visiting while you are in this lovely old city. Good luck and enjoy your trip!

During the week the shops are open until about 9pm. Saturdays they allow for weekend tourists many places stay open until well past 9pm. Of course restaurants, bars etc are open later. Area appeared to be very safe, had no problems. Although they say that Sunday shops are closed we found quite a few open in the afternoon. Most are going to church in the AM.
Need itinerary help: 6 full days in Austria starting Jan 23 (3 Replies)
Hi there - I have been researching all of these forums but can't find exactly what we hope to do and in the winter at that. This is a last minute trip and I am hoping to book lodging today but need help. Our goal is a week long getaway from DC to spend in the more quaint countryside of Austria. Therefore, here is what I have planned but please let me know if there is anything I am missing? Is there one location I should be staying to take day trips to others or should I be moving to hotels...More

I think you are trying to fit in too much especially in just 1 day in Vienna and Salzburg can be done as a day trip from Bad Ischl. You can walk most of the SOM sights. I,'d cut Innsbruck and spend an extra day in both Vienna and Bad Ischl/Salzburg area.
Altstadt visit with only a few hours to spare! (10 Replies)
We have a six hour lay over at Dusseldorf Airport on our way to Rome, and are very interested in spending a few hours in Altstadt (Old Town)! I have researched that most recommend taking the train, which is great, but does it stop right there, or do we then need to cab it from the train stop? We are interested to your suggestions for the most convienient way there and back, as well as length of time. Second, what time do the cafes along the promenade open on a Sunday, we are there the...More

With your time restraint I would not take an S Bahn but instead take a taxi direct to Altstadt. The Bahn goes to the main train station, and it is about a ten minute taxi ride from Altstadt. I am not sure of the cafe opening hours but there are a number of them that open for breakfast. Perhaps Andie can help. ZB

Each of your days seems to have 48 hours. Cut down all your plans to half. Visiting two or three cities or areas in different directions in one day can't and won't work.
