Der Ritter, Heidelberg: 8 reviews and 9 photos

  Hotel "zum Ritter"
by tini58de
 
 

This house is one of the few remaining old town houses in Heidelberg. It was built in 1592 by a Hugenot cloth merchant and has survived several fires and destructions almost unharmed. For a short period of time it served as the Heidelberg Townhall, but most of the time (and that means several centuries) it was a hotel and inn!

Directions: opposite the tower of the cathedral

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
