Schüler- und Kinderführungen
This 1½ hour tour in Heidelberg’s Old Town or up at the castle is especially designed to appeal to children between the ages of 5 and 12, and is popular for school outings as well as for birthdays and family events. True tales of robbers bold, of knights in shining armour, princes and princesses, bring the past back to life as we stroll through the town or the majestic castle grounds.
In the Old Town, a glimpse inside Heidelberg’s famed University Library reveals the early days of bookmaking, when every page, individual letter and brilliantly illuminated illustration was made by highly skilled hands.
At the castle, each massive wall and tower has a story of its own, and every little guest becomes a part of the magic. Invariably, accompanying adults are equally fascinated to discover Heidelberg from a new and joyous perspective.
