Argh Souvenirs!: "Shocked!" Heidelberg Shopping Tip by sabsi

Heidelberg Shopping: 41 reviews and 71 photos

  Argh! That's Germany?

In Heidelberg I have had many opportunities to have a look at souvenirs from Germany. I was shocked what the image of Germany must be with tourist when all they sell is coockoo clocks, beer mugs and Bavarian style dressed Teddybears.

What to buy: Maybe a postcard (watch out it's not one of the Rhine or Neuschwanstein castle when sending one from Heidelberg though). The rest is just ugly trash!

What to pay: Every Euro spent is too much if you ask me!

Address: Around the market square and at the castle
Theme: Other

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
