We got a real kick out of the lovel lady who let us into the lecture hall. Good audio tour re: university history, good bathroom rest stop. Very glad we made the effort to visit here and the student jail.

Many travelers may miss this tour, which is a shame, because all three parts are worthwhile. The student prison, Lecture Hall guide (with an English version available), and the museum itself are all fascinating, and they can be covered in less than 2 hours.

We were looking for the old student jail and the University gift shop when we stumbled upon the Old University. The woman who greeted us was quickly able to direct us to the Jail and gift shop. We asked about toilets and she directed us to main floor, great bathrooms. If you need a stop, these are the best in town

I took one of the guided tours of the University and it was a great experience - to learn about the history of Heidelberg and the University which are pretty much intertwined with each other for the past 500 years.

Worth visiting, and it has a very good audio-guide, in several languages. My only disappointment was that the museum did not explain Heidelberg student culture (I mean in the nineteenth century) better. But certainly worth visiting.
