We will whisk you away for a day to Heidelberg, a city full of history, charm and breathtaking landscapes. Here are three options for your day program to get the most out of your visit:

Short break option 1: “Discover Heidelberg from different angles”

Your day’s program starts at 10 a.m. with a unique
boat trip with Riverboat Heidelberg

The relaxed atmosphere and the view of the historic buildings and green mountains will enchant you. While you sit comfortably in the boat and have breakfast, you can enjoy breathtaking views of the Old Bridge, the castle, the historic mountain railroad and much more. The only “breakfast restaurant” in Heidelberg with changing views of the city’s sights!

After the relaxing jaunt, we continue our sightseeing program ashore, refreshed and in a good mood. On a walk through Heidelberg’s Old Town, you can stroll through the narrow alleyways, discover historic squares and soak up the charming atmosphere of the city. The charm of the narrow streets and historic squares in the beautiful Neckar city is absolutely unique.

A real highlight awaits you in the afternoon: a visit to Heidelberg Castle. After a short climb up to the majestic castle, you have a breathtaking view of the Neckar and the surrounding mountains. A moment you won’t forget in a hurry. Afterwards, round off the evening in one of the many historic venues in the old town.

your cruise with Riverboat Heidelberg

Pure relaxation awaits us on board the historic wooden boats. At a leisurely speed of 5 km/h, we glide along the most beautiful places in Heidelberg. Here you can not only enjoy the sun on your skin, but also taste delicious wines from the region and enjoy good conversation. If you like, you can also book snacks such as our tapas platter and let yourself be pampered all round.

After the relaxed ride, we head to the other side of the Neckar, into the countryside. You can enjoy nature and recharge your batteries on a relaxing walk along the Neckarwiese.
