About Heidelberg and how to get there

Heidelberg

The city of Heidelberg, home to Germany's oldest university founded in 1386, celebrating its 625th anniversary in 2011, with its romantic townscape is an event in itself. The harmonious ensemble of the world's most famous castle ruins, the Old Town and the Neckar river nestling amongst the hills already inspired the painters and poets of 19th century Romanticism. Heidelbergs fascination continues until today for millions of visitors from all over the world.

Heidelberg is located approximately 80 km to the south of Frankfurt. Getting to and from Heidelberg is simple by either plane, train or road. From Frankfurt airport to Heidelberg we recommend to book the TLS Transfer door-to-door shuttle-service (Euro 33,00 one way), which brings you directly to the hotel you booked and back from there to the airport. With the following links you can book your flights, and book your train, and find your car route.
