Heidelberg is the paradigm of a romantic city. The picturesque town clasps to the bickering Neckar River; tree-clad hills rise on both sides of the stream, and the ruins of a medieval castle overlook the red-shingled houses of the old town. Cobblestoned streets and dramatic sunsets add to the flair of the picture-perfect scenery. We’ve made a list of the most romantic spots in the historic city.

1. Old Bridge

Heidelberg’s Old Bridge connects the historic town centre with the Neuenheim district on the other side of the Neckar. The arched bridge is great for an afternoon stroll. The unfettered views of the castle and the medieval Elizabeth gate make great props for your pictures.
