Tread softly into the night-time world of Heidelberg's past with this in-app audio tour. Ideal for history enthusiasts and adventurers alike, this exploration unfolds the secrets of Heidelberg under the starlit sky once guarded by night watchmen. The journey begins at the historically charged Bismarckplatz, travels through the heart-stirring sights of Hauptstraße, and ultimately winds its way to the contemplative Philosopher's Walk. Along the way, roam the Old Bridge where countless watchmen have scanned the heavens, and visit the Market Square that echoes the bygone chatter and footfalls of vigilant guardians. Starting at Bismarckplatz, an emblem of tradition and history, the tour meanders towards the Philosopher's Walk, known for its inspiring natural beauty and intellectual legacy. Between these points lie whispers of the past, the grandeur of Heidelberg University, the silent vigil of the Church of the Holy Spirit, and the lively bygones of Corn Market. Absorb the textured tales of the Old University and the echoes of Marstallhof's equine residents. On this winding path, feel the cobblestones underfoot, touch the age-old walls, and immerse in the aura of an era when the night watchmen were the city's silent sentinels. With captivating stories at each stop, this audio tour paints a vivid picture of Heidelberg's heritage under the cloak of night.
