Guided Tours of Heidelberg

Heidelberg, which is not far from the outlet of the Neckar River into the Rhein, lies in one of the most sunny nature regions of Germany. Known as the city of Romanticism and the site of Germany’s most famous university both at home and abroad, Heidelberg has been one of the major attractions for visitors to Germany from across the globe, ever since the 19th century.

Heidelberg’s cityscape invites you to a journey through time into the world of the Baroque with its foreign gables, mansard roofs, magnificent coats of arms, and impressive town houses and is waiting for you with great views and post card romanticism. Heidelberg’s young population and Mediterranean temperatures give it an additional flair.

During our Heidelberg city guided tours, we explain the culinary and cultural specialties of Heidelberg and the surrounding region. We will give you ideas for walks and subjects for photography and let you participate in dramatic and amusing events from Heidelberg’s turbulent history.

Experience one of Germany’s cultural metropolises with our guided tours of Heidelberg, walk in the footsteps of the romanticists or let yourself be enchanted by the unique Philosophenweg (Philosophers’ Path). Visit the area around the castle and the old fortifications system or go look in the small, angular lanes for traces of a Heidelberg of times long forgotten. Take our night watchman tour to discover Heidelberg by lantern light in the evening. k3 stadtführungen Heidelberg’s programme also offers you city sightseeing tours and evening strolls as well as guided tours tailored to meet your individual needs.

We are looking forward to your visit!
