Hotel Address:Location Summary
- Hotel Die Hirschgasse Heidelberg
- Hirschgasse 3
- Heidelberg, 69120
The conquering of the town is best to start with a walk alongside the River Neckar embankment, the Heidelberg castle always dominantly in view, which has fascinated many painters, amongst them one of the biggest British painters: Joseph Mallord William Turner who painted the Heidelberg castle from the Hirschgasse in 1844. The marvellous walk will lead you across the Old Bridge, right in the heart of the Old City, with it sights, shops, cafes and restaurants.
The hotel Hirschgasse Heidelberg is unique and provides hotel accommodation in luxurious rooms and suites. It is not only the oldest hotel of Heidelberg but also the oldest student duelling house of Germany.
