City of Romanticism
A vibrant university city, Heidelberg is nestled in the picturesque Neckar river valley. It's considered a jewel among German travel destinations. In this region, the legend-rich Odenwald (a low-mountain range) opens up toward the sprawling Rhine river plains--a densely populated part of the country. Home to the nation's oldest university, established in 1386, Heidelberg has a huge student population from around Europe. It's not only a city of academic excellence, but also a place of diversity and youthful energy. Visitors from around the globe tour the town for its celebrated cityscape, packed with historical attractions and other sights. The ruins of a famous castle here are considered the most important Renaissance structure north of the Alps. Heidelberg is in Baden-Wurttemberg.
