Come with me on a guided hike to the top of the Heiligenberg - from here you not only have beautiful views of the castle, you will see traces and monuments of a very rich history, which can be traced back to the bronze age, where the celts have build a double ring wall around their settlement enclosing the summit of the mountain. Later the Romans occupied the mountain and in 1032 the St. Michael's Monastery was founded, shortly after followed by the Stefan’s Monastery. A mysterious hole (Heidenloch) has been discovered and in the 30s a huge open air theater was built... to name a few of the historic remains we will discover on the tour. We will meet at the Old Bridge on the Neuenheim Side (across from the old town) and start our hike from there over the famous 'Schlangenweg' up the mountain. We will scale about 380 meters in alitude, hiking along some quiet narrow and in some areas steep trails. We will have little picknick on top of the mountain with some typical German snacks. You will also pass the famous Philosophers Way. There are plenty of great spots to take pictures and we will pass several observation towers you can scale if you like. The total hike is around 6.5 km.
Il tuo host
I was born and raised in Heidelberg. With my great grandfather being one if the directors of the Heidelberg University, I heared a lot of stories about the city and the student life,growing up. As a kid we spent weeks at a time in the woods on the Heiligenberg exploring all the 'secrets' up there. After several years in Colorado, where I spent a lot of time Barrel Racing, I'm back in Heidelberg now and I'm happy to show you my city!
