Heidelberg : Michelin's recommendations
Heidelberg, the centre of German Romanticism, has inspired numerous poets who were attracted here by the natural beauty of the site and its castle ruins, the red sandstone of which contrasts sharply with the greenery of the surrounding woodland. This pearl of the Neckar, far from being a museum-city, is now a lively university town with an intense, vibrant cultural life.
