Need help locating a castle/restaurant/hotel  (4 Answers)

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??? :(

Travel around Heidelberg / Germany / Austria  (12 Answers)

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)

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.

Military presence in Heidelberg  (1 Answer)

Hello all
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 :)

Six hours in Heidelberg  (6 Answers)

Hi VTers!

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!
Mirjam

Frankfurt to Heidelberg on a Sunday night  (12 Answers)

Hi everyone,

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!

Lucy

Any help is appreciated.
