"Karlstor" Top 5 Page for this destination Old Town/Altstadt Tip by Sjalen

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


Karl Theodor, the Prince Elector that has given his name to so much in Heidelberg, had this triumphal arch built and you can see him and his wife portraid in it. It was never completed but is still a nice, typically Roman style, arch despite being in the middle of a busy traffic junction today.

Address: Karlstor
Directions: Continue Haupstrasse beyond its "high number" end.
