Visit historical sites and museums when you stay at a Heidelberg rental to get to know more about the culture and heritage of Germany. Around the Heidelberg vacation homes, you will find a spread of interesting landmarks that date back to many centuries ago as well as museums that house historical artifacts and works from master artists.
The most famous landmark in Heidelberg is no other than the Heidelberg Castle. Found on top of a plateau overlooking the Old Town, this castle can be accessed by climbing on foot or by using the mountain railway from Kornmarkt. At the castle courtyard, you will see different styles of architecture, which is the main proof that the castle was constructed in different time periods.
The Bridge Gate is another must-see site in the area. It is located at the old town near the Neckar River. Two white towers are located beside the bridge gate. The west tower was used as a dungeon while the east tower is where you'll find a spiral staircase.
