Heidelberg, Germany Cruise Port

When cruising to one of Germany’s oldest towns, Heidelberg, Germany expect to fall in love with this exciting atmosphere as well as its historic past. This area seems to capture the best of the old and new with the university town and historic castle ruins. On your cruise to Heidelberg, Germany you will find yourself along the Neckar river valley where the oldest university in Germany, built in 1386, resides. The long and rich history of the university can be compared to that of Cambridge or Oxford. During WWII, the area was almost completely spared which is why today, you can still view the baroque charm, houses and castle ruins.
