"Markplatz" Old Town/Altstadt Tip by terps94

Old Town/Altstadt, Heidelberg: 37 reviews and 68 photos

In the center of Alstadt is the cobblestone Markplatz. Line with shops and cafes but back in the old days this where accused witches and heretics were burned at the stake. Some of Heidelberg oldest structures border the squares: the 14th century Heiliggestkirche ( Church of the Holy Spirit) and the 16th century Haus Zum Ritter) which located opposite the church.
