We'll be stopping over in Heidelberg for a day trip by car on Sat. Sept. 24th en route to Mainz and are hoping to tour Schwetzingen Castle right after Heidelberg. We are planning on Heidelberg Castle, a walking tour of the old city and a stroll along the Philosopher’s Walk if time permitting.
I read about parking issues on Sat., and am wondering where should we park our car? Can anyone recommend an easy to find and generally available parking space close to the old city?
We’ll start from Baden-Baden in the early morning, stop over in Heidelberg and Schwetzingen, and finally arrive in Mainz in the late afternoon or early evening on Sat. Is any other town or village worth a quick stopover on this route?
We are leaving for Germany in a couple of days. Thanks for any input!
