Description

Join me on this Online Experience and I will take you around the most wonderful sights that Heidelberg has to offer. 

We will start our tour from the Anatomiegarten. Here, we will appreciate the statue of Robert Bunsen and learn more about the discovery of spectral analysis made by him and Kirchhoff in this very city. We will then take a stroll down Hauptstrasse, which is the main street, and make our way towards the University square. Along this picturesque walk, I will give you a broad introduction about the history of the city in main points. Admiring the sprawling grounds of the Heidelberg University, you will get to know about its history as well as some interesting facts: from Nobel prizewinners and confraternities to the student jail.  We will then make our way around the corner to visit the gothic church of St. Peter and the library.
On our way to the main square, which is known as the Marktplatz, I will show you a shop that sells our unique traditional desserts and snowballs. Once at the Marktplatz, we will walk around and appreciate the Church of the Holy Spirit,  the fountain, and the city hall. Next, we will visit the bakery CafèKnösel, where the traditional “Student’s Kiss” chocolate is made by hand.

We will end our tour at the Old Bridge, from here you will get a good view of the castle and the surrounding hills as I regale you with trivia about the bridge and the “bridge monkey”.

Valeria Politino

I am an Italian girl who came to Heidelberg for her Master in Astrophysics. I fell in love with the city since day one of living here, and this feeling has only grown fonder over the years. I am passionate about every aspect of human knowledge (hence my scientific studies). I love learning as much as I can every day. In particular, I learned a lot about the city I live in. Not only that, but I also love explaining and spreading culture to others: that’s why I aspire to become a teacher one day, and I also took on the challenge to guide people into the discovery of one of the loveliest cities in Germany!

From USD 37 / Screen
