We sat outside on a warm summer lunchtime and enjoyed a wonderful, flavoursome lunch. The location, near the old bridge, was lovely and the effort with foliage around the restaurant seating area added to the whole effect. There was an English menu, which was great, and we selected the salmon with herb sauce, rice and salad and the turkey schnitzel... More

We didn't have to search far to find this gem. Straight out of the front door of the Hollaender Hof, where we are staying and there it was. I have to confess, we'd been travelling all day and tiredness was part of the reason for staying close on the first night. I've never been so pleased to be tired! The... More

We tried this location based on a recommendation by the hotel and we're thrilled. The menu presents an extensive array of local cuisine as options and the menu is a cant miss. Portions are large and tasty and service is beyond attentive. We were treated to a great evening out as we were seated in the outdoor area and observed... More

We have again taken friends visiting Heidelberg to the Wirtshaus zum Spreisel for a successful dinner. The outside seating area with its comfortable chairs and lovely view of the Old Bridge was the perfect place to be on a warm July evening. The dinner of fresh chanterelle mushrooms (Pffifferlinge) and light, tasty Knoedel (dumplings) was the star of our table.... More

One of the real highlights of our trip and we almost stumbled upon it by accident. After an unpromising start - asking the first server we saw (who turns out to be Maria, the owner) whether we could have a table and been told simply "Nein" - she was just too busy! we almost went elsewhere. But having walked a... More

My husband and I have been enjoying going to Maria's Wirtshaus Zum Spreisel since 2009. Every year we visit the restaurant and is still our first choice for all our guests, (more of a tradition now) big or small groups from around the world! We enjoy the personal touch from Maria and her staff, the beautiful location, and surely the... More

Zum Spreisel is located on the ground level at the Hotel Hollander Hof, but it's not operated by the hotel. It specializes in local and regional dishes, and they do not disappoint. The menu is quite varied, everything I saw coming out of the kitchen looked wonderful, and nearby diners were exclaiming about their meals in several languages. The owner/manager... More

We found a remarkably quiet table outside overlooking the historic old bridge. Be sure to check out the poster with the seasonal dishes -- we had an excellent asparagus soup was a starter. There's also a small selection of Greek dishes (the owner's wife is Greek). After spending a few days exploring the German cuisine, which is good, but rather... More

This was our first meal in Germany. It is just across from the iconic Alte Brucke, which in the US would likely mean they could get away with being overpriced AND terrible, but since this is Europe it was a quality meal if just slightly expensive. I had the Haxe, one of the kids had Schnitzel and another had some... More

The location is awesome-just steps away from the the river and bridge. The tomato soup is the best I have ever eaten. The Goulash was amazing and paired with the duck fat fried sliced potatoes I wanted to lick the plate clean! My favorite part of dinner was the owner, Maria, she made you feel like a guest not just... More
