Full description
Experience the Neuenheimer side of Heidelberg, which was the Roman nucleus of the city. Neuenheim developed from a craftsman quarter which already existed at the end of the 19th century and transformed into a “posh suburb.” Follow us from the old Roman bridge over the Philosophenweg to Bismarkturm and Hölderlin Anlage, to the lost village of Dagersbach and the entrenchments of the 1848 revolution. Enjoy the indescribable panorama of the old town and learn all about the history of this unbelievably beautiful place. Follow in the footsteps of empress Sissi, Mark Twain, Friedrich Hölderlin, Franz Brentano and Victor Hugo. In the 19th century, strolls on this romantic path in Heidelberg were a popular pastime for students and travelers. Meeting Point at the fountain on Neuenheim Marketplace.

    Great guidance, very competent guide. It was really fun listening to her. I learned a great deal about Heidelberg and the poets and thinkers who once visited Heidelberg. And then the view from the Philosophenweg on the city, just great! Definitely recommendable.

    Eine sehr schöne Tour auf die 'andere' Seite von Heidelberg. Man hat so aber einen sehr guten Blick auf den Ort und die Altstadt. Die Guide war sehr gut und hat uns alle Fragen sehr geduldig und kompetent beantwortet.
