General info:



Probably you will like to walk along Hauptstrasse (one mile long main street with good shopping, pubs, etc.) And the castle (of course). If you take the "tram" up to the castle, you can continue up further to the Odenwald and Molkenkur or to the Philosophers' Walk across the river (or both) for a nice walk and views of the city.

I also suggest to walk along the river in Neuneheim where the young peoiple sunbathe, sail boats, etc, with views of city. Just Walk across the bridge and head over. BTW most students and young people speak good English and often enjoy speaking with Americans (and many have already been to NYC!)

There is also a nice boat ride up the Neckar for a few hours, although if your time is limited you might skip it.




At night there are many possibilities. You may find a student-pub near the university section. I also suggest the popular Vetter's beer pub right across the river in Neuenheim.


If you go to the tourist office at the train station they will also let you know about entertainment in town, some of which is in English (US Army still has presence in Heidelberg). There are also discos, and the tourist can tell you what's hot. There may also be some sort of festival when you are there.



You should love Heidelberg. They call it the "Berkeley Germany" because of the good weather and studnet population.
