WHO WE ARE

We are a group of students who are passionate about Heidelberg and want to share our wonderful city with any and everyone.

All of our tours are independently run and offer you a glimpse into the rich cultural history of our city, as well as the various social, economic and political factors which have shaped modern-day Heidelberg.

The free public walking tours are provided by a young and dynamic group of people who want to share their individual experiences and love of Heidelberg, meaning all our tours are uniquely different depending on the tastes of your guide for the day. We pride ourselves on a fine balance of historical tidbits and interesting and unusual stories that deliver a different perspective of the city – making it perfect for tourists, travelers, and even locals.

PUBLIC TOURS

Since its inception in 2014, our free public tour has become wildly popular among tourists and locals alike.

Our tours guide you through Heidelberg’s iconic old town, navigating through the famous University square where much of Heidelberg’s history was forged, then onto the Neckar-Valley to see the ancient castles and baroque towers.

As well as being completely free, our tours run every week from Wednesday to Sunday and are led by experienced guides who are sure to inject their tastes into every trip, so the destinations in each tour will vary from day-to-day. The tours begin at 2:30 PM and we meet next to the famous Bridge Monkey which is a stone’s throw from the Old Bridge Gate – on the other side of the Hotel Holländer Hof – you’ll see our tour guide who will be sporting a bright backpack with our green logo on the front, and we also have green umbrellas with our name on. For the weather conscious, have no fear, we run the tours rain or shine – make sure to wrap up. Our public tours are offered in English and Spanish only, for more languages, please see our private tours.
