Heidelberg Half-Day Trip from Frankfurt

Summary

Add some small-town elegance to your Frankfurt vacation on a half-day tour of Heidelberg. Choose a morning or afternoon departure time, meet your friendly guide in central Frankfurt and board the coach for a drive into the Baden-Württemberg region. Soon arrive in beautiful Heidelberg, a mosaic of Renaissance buildings and red-hued rooftops set against a backdrop of green hills.  Begin at Heidelberg Castle, strategically perched upon a hilltop overlooking the city, where you have time to tour the building’s impressive ruins. Explore the site’s architecturally diverse buildings and spaces, admire the sculpted portraits of famous German leaders, and check out centuries-old artifacts such as the Great Barrel that once stored up to 130,000 liters (about 34,342 gallons) of wine! Snap some panoramic photos of the lovely Neckar River before heading into town. Next, stroll along the cobbled streets of medieval Old Town, peeking into cloistered courtyards and viewing impressive landmarks like the Karl Theodor Bridge and the Church of the Holy Spirit. After your tour, re-board your coach for the short ride back to Frankfurt. Return to the original departure point by afternoon or evening depending upon start time.
