Such beauty, these towers, this gate. The richness of the town is reflected in this structure, as is the strength. Enjoy!

The old part of the romantic city is beautiful with most of the buildings made in the 17th Century. Our guide was very informative and we enjoyed walking on the bridge.

When doing the sight seeing in the old town of Heidelberg the "old bridge" is one of the must photo stops.

My visit to Heiligenberg was a surprise and did not disappoint. We ended our visit to Heidelberg here. It was nearly tourist free and had a wonderful few of the city and surrounding forest. I would consider this a hidden treasure.

The day we visited, scaffolding was being erected for some refurbishment. The gate is only something to look at. It's not like you can do anything, like go up in it. Save your legs for the castle if you are inclined!

I don't know why there's a picture of the Alte Brucke gate for the Heiligenberg, which is on the other side of the river and many hundreds of meters higher. You can get there by foot (or even bicycle if you're ambitious) via the Philosophenweg,...More

This entire mountain (hill) is great. So much cultural history here, not to mention great terrain for hiking and trail running. This place is one of my favorite in Heidelberg.
