Tourist information

On this article's sightseeing and tours page, we mentioned two guidebooks, Castle and City Guide Heidelberg am Neckar and (in German) Marco Polo: Heidelberg.

photoAnother useful little German-language book is Heidelberg: Kleiner Führer der Stadt Heidelberg, which costs only a few euros, fits into a pocket, has an easy-to-read centerfold map of the city center, and covers the major sights.

On the Web, your most complete source of tourist information for Heidelberg is the official English-language Web site of Heidelberg Kongress and Tourismus GmBH, a.k.a. the Heidelberg tourist office.

Also see the Heidelberg pages at Historic Highlights of Germany and, for regional travel, the multilingual Baden-Württemberg state tourism site.

Need a car in Europe?

If you live outside the EU, a tax-free Renault or Peugeot tourist lease can be cheaper than renting. Minimum driver age is 18, there' s no upper age limit, and rates include insurance.
