In 1999 I was in Heidelberg and we stayed at a hotel that was out in the woods a bit. On the way to the hotel in our tour bus, we passed a large field - I think it was a winery field as I remember rows of grapes or something and behind this, up on the hill from the crops, was a building that looked like an old castle. It had a tower and a wall and a few buildings. Later that night, upon closer inspection there was a patio that was obviously a casual restaurant and we learned that there were people living there - as a Bed and Breakfast or a hotel.
I'm trying to find where this was.... because I'm going back now, 17 years later and I'd love to see it again... any ideas??? :(
Does anyone know what it would be like driving from Heidelberg to Salzburg, Austria for just a day or two? Also, are there any interesting WWII historical sites in proximity to Heidelberg - one daughter is a huge history buff. Only there for about 10 days and want to make the most of it. Right now, Heidelberg is the only place we are visiting after flying into Frankfurt. (This was originally posted in the wrong forum)
What would be the next must-see, after the castle, of course, if we only have one day/night in Heidelberg?

Can any one let me know if there are any nice picturesque countryside drives around Heidelberg. What are the major sightseeing places around Heidelberg - am interested in medieval castles and idyllic countryside drives with stopovers in village 'inns' for wine/beer and food. I prefer holidays where I base myself in one place, soak up the feel of the place and make short trips around the base by train or road. This holiday I want to explore a bit of Germany so could someone please advise.
Trying to decide which one to stay at as both have great ratings and sights? Will be first time in Germany. Going to stay later in Luxembourg for the last 2 nights. Thank you.
Could anyone give me a tip on how to surprise my girlfriend in Heidelberg? Maybe some restaurant or event/performance. I really really like her and want to do something nice with her. Please let me know!
As I understand it, most US Army bases in the Heidelberg area have now been shut down. Is this correct?
I was curious about the military hospital where General Patton died. This was located on a US Army base in Heidelberg and wondered if it was still operational.
If there is still a lot of GI's around, then i'm guessing they frequent the local watering holes quite a lot!?
Thanks again everyone :)
How do I find places to catch such a bus, time schedule and cost?

Have now booked 1 week in Neckar Valley near Heidleberg and 1 week in Feiburg, can anyone advise if the above tickets are worthwhile and what they actually offer. Mentioned before we are Aussies and have no idea how useful they will be but has been suggested we purchase them.
2 Aussie adults would like to take a short cruise on Rhine river or Danube - approx 5-6 day. Must depart from Heidelberg area but arrival location is very flexible as long as we head in the France/Switzerland direction. Does anyone know if there are short cruises available OR are there day cruises?
We have 1 week to fill in before heading towards Laussaune in Switzerland and just cannot decide what to do. Our interests are walking, historic buildings, history, nature.
Help Please!! I know this is the Heidelberg forum but these 2 towns are nearby, previously on this site advice was given suggesting accomodation websites, have tried Hotel Kredell and Die Dependance thru google and CANNOT GET INFO IN ENGLISH, if anyone can help it would be appreciated.
If not any suggestions for accom in Neckargemund or Weinheim as we have a week to explore Neckar valley and surrounding areas, in English, would be appreciated - prefer self catering or B & B.
Really great advice on this website.... thanks
Very suddenly a one day trip to Heidelberg came up, I'm going there next week on a uni field trip. We will go to the library at first to see a medieval manuscript and then I will have about six hours until my train leaves from the train station (everybody is free to organise the homejourney by him/herself).
I have a guidebook which tells me about Heidelberg, but I am a bit at a loss. Can you give suggestion of an itinerary that does give me a chance to see something of the town in such a short time? My family loves the castle but I'm not sure if it's reasonable to go there.
Thanks a lot!
I am transcribing my Aunt's Trip diary. She toured Europe, including Germany, in 1938. This photo (of her and her traveling companion) is in her scrapbook. I think it is in Heidelberg, but just not sure. Here is a link to my photo
If not that city, do you know what other city,or what the building is called?
Thanks very kindly for any info. Kathy
I'm arriving in Frankfurt (from Australia) on Sunday 12 June. My flight gets in at 1920. I was thinking of spending a couple of nights in Heidelberg to start my 5 week holiday in Germany.
My question is, is it easy to hop on a train at the International airport when I arrive, and get down to Heidelberg on a Sunday evening, or should I stay the first night in Frankfurt?
I was thinking of booking at the Goldener Falke which I saw recommended on this forum. But I don't want to arrive too late to check in ...
Thanks in advance for any advice!
Dear VT friends,
Is there any bus service between heidelberg and Strasbourg? What's the fair?
Is it better to travel by bus or by train? some of the factors in deciding this are frequency, Price, convenience.....
We're coming in for a night in Heidelberg, and are looking for an organized pub crawl group or even some locals who wouldn't mind some free drinks/food for taking us around to the best pubs/bar/clubs/breweries. We're both in our mid 20s and would ideally like to find something that caters to that age range.
Any help is appreciated.
Hi we would like to spend 2-3 nights in Heilelberg to commence our tpip through the Black Forrest.
