COMING UP: Heidelberg, Germany

Heidelberg in Germany is a romantic destination in the Rhine valley, located by the Neckar river. It is the home of University of Heidelberg, founded in 1386.  It is one of Europe's oldest institutions. In fact, Heidelberg is the oldest university town of today's Germany, and it is the reason why I visit this city as Knut, one of my nephews is enrolled as a student there.

I am getting there by traveling from Oslo to Frankfurt am Main by plane. This time I have chosen Scandinavian Airlines to bring me there. For 1 655 NOK ($ 282 / € 218) I will travel non-stop to Frankfurt and will change plane at Copenhagen on my way back to Oslo.

I will travel from the airport to Heidelberg by train, entering at the airport. I will stay three nights at Hotel Bayrischer Hof, located on Bismarckplatz, by the 1.6 kilometre-long pedestrian zone and just one kilometre from Heidelberg’s main railway station. Hotel Bayrischer Hof is ranked as one of the best hotel in the city by tripadvisor.

So stay tuned for another intriguing destination in June here on Enjoy Food & Travel.
