Heidelberg's Altstadt Walking Audio Tour by VoiceMap
5 reviews
Join Heidelberg resident Erin McGann on a winding tour of the picturesque Altstadt, the old town of this fascinating German city on the banks of the Neckar River. Take in the famous Church of the Holy Ghost in the center of the main market square, discover the carvings that allowed residents to check the legal size of their pretzels (really!), hear stories of the catastrophic floods, find out which buildings are the oldest, hear how the university students got so rowdy they ended up with their own prison, and learn about the romantic history of our ruined castle. The tour is ready whenever you are and the audio plays automatically at exactly the right time and place using your smartphone's GPS and the VoiceMap mobile app, which also works offline.

keep going up from the Thingstatte and you will end up here, supposedly it is 4000 years old, not sure if that is true, but a cool place to see and relax none the less.

If you went all the way up to Thingstatte, you can walk a couple of meters further to visit the ruins of Michealskloster. You will see mostly the foundations, but it is interesting and somehow appealing.

This was our first visit to Michaelskloster. The monastery ruins is pretty interesting, but you need to be somewhat fit as you’ll have to walk up hill to get there. The other cool thing on your route up to the monastery is the German amphitheater that they built in the mid 1930s

There is a free parking lot nearby and a bus stop so you can drive almost up to the ruins but I chose to hike from the down town, following Philosophenweg, then continuing on Oberer Philosophenweg and later following the signs pointing to the ruins. It wasn't easy hike, it took
