The picturesque city of Heidelberg, located in the southwest of Germany, was established during the medieval period on the shores of the river Neckar. It used to be the center of German romanticism, as well as a place of significant political, religious and cultural tradition. Nowadays, it is one of the famous tourist attractions of the country due to its natural beauty and the endless monuments. Here is a list of some excellent brunch and breakfast spots where you can fuel up for all your Heidelberg adventures.

Cafe Extrablatt is a cafeteria located on Hauptstrasse since 2003, especially loved by the foreign tourists. It offers a wide range of breakfast options to satisfy all nationalities and tastes, from Italian (capuccino coffee, small breads, salami, tomatoes with mozzarella and olives) to American (eggs with bacon, small sausages, butter, ketchup and two small breads) and so much more.

A restaurant based on the Mediterranean philosophy is not something common for the standards of Germany and Heidelberg. Die Olive is a great place to start your day from something different and special, with cold drinks, coffee or tea, accompanied with tasty Mediterranean flavors, based on the ingredient of olive (of course!).

5. Cafe Merlin

Merlin Cafebar-Restaurant is located at the heart of Heidelberg and is a living landmark of the city’s culinary tradition.

So, ask the always helpful staff for the daily suggestions and offers and don’t hesitate to go for something new.
