Coffee break: Favourite cafés in Heidelberg 

At Nomad, you can enjoy excellent coffee with impressive latte art in a relaxed atmosphere. You could also try something from the fantastic sandwich menu. The food is just as delicious and the atmosphere is just as cosy at Meiks Brunch and Bar. Here, it will also be worth your while to have a look at the cake counter.

We’d move into Friedrich if we could. This is because this café, which transforms into a bar of an evening, stands out with its hip, vintage flair. In the neighboring concept store, you can browse for some lovely items to take home after you’ve enjoyed your coffee.

Down-home, hipster-friendly dining in the Altstadt 

You should ideally finish off your sightseeing tour around Heidelberg with a hearty meal. You can find some especially delicious food at Vetter’s Alt Brauhaus, at the heart of the Altstadt. The traditional restaurant serves down-to-earth cuisine. If you’re just a bit peckish, you can enjoy some delicious sandwich items here, too. Just next door, at La Bohème Bistrot, the dishes are small, but exemplary, and the upscale menu is changed frequently. Another great location for fantastic restaurants and cafés is the Heidelberger Märzgasse. Wonderful food spots line the streets here. You can enjoy home-made pizza at Unter Freunden, and just down the road, you can sample some wonderful vegetarian and vegan soups at Franz Soupmarine
