Heidelberg CastlePerched 80 meters above the Altstadt and Neckar is the former seat of the Prince Electors of Heidelberg, now one of the world's finest ruins.

OLd BridgeThe Alte Brücke, which crosses the Neckar between the Altstadt district and Neuenheim on the right bank, dates back to 1788, during the reign of Elector Charles Theodore in its present form. This structure is the ninth bridge to be constructed at this site, though it is more than 200 years old.

HeiligenbergBus rental recommends you take a detour off the Philosophenweg for a time to reach Heiligenberg. This 440-metre-high sandstone hill features the oldest housing signs from Heidelberg. You can also climb two observation towers: The Heiligenbergturm dates back to the 19th century, but it was built with blocks of sandstone from St Stephen's late 11th century monastery.
StudentenkarzerThere is a small prison on Augustinergasse in a baroque building at the back of the Old University, where students have been briefly locked up for minor offences. The bus service encourages you to visit the Studentenkarzer because of the vandalism and the pictures students admire on the walls of the jail for their accomplishments.
