The location of the hotel
The Residenz Heidelberg is located in the heart of Rohrbach, a 1200 years old quarter in the south of Heidelberg. The center of Heidelberg is only 4 km away, the next tram stop is 4 minutes by foot.
Tram 23 takes you to the Bismarckplatz in approx. 10 minutes. The Bismarckplatz is located right in the center of Heidelberg and marks the beginning of the pedestrian zone, which is one of the longest in Europe (1.4 km) and extends to the old town center and the historic landmarks of Heidelberg.
The hotel is also close to the central railway station, which can be reached in approx. 10 minutes by tram 24.
In the immediate surroundings of the hotel you’ll find the Thoraxklinik, (a world-class lung-center), a supermarket, a few restaurants and some small shops.
Every Saturday, there is a farmers‘ market selling local products on the town hall square in front of the hotel.
If you are a fan of hiking, or taking walks in the forest, the hotel is the right place to start from. The next forest is within 10 minutes walking distance. Hike uphill in the forest and after approx 30 minutes you’ll reach the Bierhelder Hof, an idyllic guesthouse with a beergarden and its own Angus cattle breeding.
Another great trail to discover is the vineyard hike path. It starts directly in the opposite of the hotel and takes you through the vineyards of Heidelberg.
