Reviewed March 14, 2013

The Dubliner Pub was nice. Live Band on Monday night. The Heidelberg Castle is just up the hill. Lots of small squares, cafes and shops.

“Great atmosphere on Saturday evening”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

The old town was full of people, lots of shops, that unfortunately close quite soon for my taste, many clubs and bars. It was lovely to take a nice long stroll.

“Historic”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

The old town is full of action, full of people at night with its numerous cafes and restaurants. The buidlings along the pedestrian street are all very worth visiting.

“Great Walk”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Loved walking through the old town. This area and the Markplatz are blended in one area. As such, you get the architecture, history, churches, great shopping, terrific cafes--everything--in just a couple of square blocks. Loved this area. If you like to sip a cappucino and people watch, head to the Altstadt.
