Discover Heidelberg by night as your Night Watchman leads you through the medieval alleyways of the old town. Light up your torch and experience Heidelberg as its inhabitants did hundreds of years ago.

Start your tour from the Market Square by the Hercules Fountain. Pass by the city hall, the Korn Market, Palais Prinz Carl, and Palais Graimberg.
