How to Find the Best Heidelberg Hotels with Hotels.com

Heidelberg is a German town in the State of Baden-Württemberg, and is the country's oldest University town. A former residence of the Electorate of the Palatinate, Heidelberg is popular among tourists due to its romantic and picturesque atmosphere, baroque architecture, and small town appeal. Unlike many other German cities, Heidelberg came out of the Second World War unscathed, and the red roofed buildings throughout the area form an idyllic view which will feel like you have been transported back to the 17th century. The town has plenty of historical attractions, shopping streets, and a lively nightlife. It can be a daunting task finding your ideal hotel in Heidelberg, especially if you have certain expectations when it comes to budget. With Hotels.com, you can feel rest assured that you will find the perfect hotel for you, as you can look through thousands of user submitted reviews, photo galleries, and locations via Google maps.

What's Heidelberg Like?

There are plenty of iconic streets and landmarks throughout the city, with history around every corner. There is also a bustling shopping scene in the area, as well as a thriving nightlife thanks to the large student population in the town. The Altstadt (Old Town) is one of the must see areas of the city, which spans from Sofienstrasse and leads all the way to the castle, with the University at its centre. Philosophers' Way is a street along the Neckar River which has been famously walked by philosophers such as Goethe. Museums such as the Museum of the Palatinate and Old Heidelberg University will surely give you an appreciation for the artifacts and local history of Heidelberg.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Heidelberg

The atmosphere in Heidelberg is lively and outgoing, thanks in part to the large student and tourist presence. Although all of the signs and directions will of course be in German, many of the locals will speak English, however it would be advised to either learn a few key German phrases or bring a pocket phrase book. Comfortable walking shoes would be a good investment as you could spend hours exploring the town centre, which can easily be traversed on foot. The Summer months take place from June to August, and during the day temperatures will typically rise to approximately 20°C. There are two tourist information offices in the city, one on Willy-Brandt-Platz 1 and the other on Marktplatz 10. Be sure to check with the Hotels.com website before you depart, as you can use our Google maps applet to enjoy a virtual tour of the area around your hotel.
