The Truth about Heidelberg –A Guided Tour with Mark Twain
One of the most eccentric and most entertaining interpreters of the history of Heidelberg takes you on a tour through the city: The great American writer and humorist Mark Twain takes an hour off to describe to you, in his typical and inimitable fashion, his personal take on the sights and history of the city and the people who live there, and all in accordance with his motto: “Truth is the most valuable thing we have. Let us economize it”. A joy to walk.

With the Night Watchman through the Dark Alleyways of Heidelberg
The night watchman has been responsible for the safety of the citizens within the city walls since the Middle Ages. Ever since the Romantics began to celebrate Heidelberg in song at the beginning of the 19th century, and commemorate the mighty ruins of the castle for eternity in copperplate engravings, guests have been coming to the Neckar from all over the world. They too were protected by the night watchman from robbers, dubious antiques dealers, and other immoral proposals. Accompany the night watchman and explore the alleyways of the Old Town while he recounts tales from days long.
