The apartment is situated in the perfect spot between University Square and Castle.
On the lower level there is a double bedroom, living room with cable-tv, fully equipped kitchen and a toilet. In the attic you will find a second double bed and in case you are a group of 5 or 6 there is enough room to spread out a couple more mattresses. On that level there is also a bathroom with combined shower/bathtub and a WC. Next to it is a little workroom with a PC with High Speed Internet at your disposal.
The apartment comes with a spacious private terrace with weber grill, beer barrel fridge ( request filling in time pls.:-) and a beautiful view over the 'Altstadt'.
Other amenities - all free of charge of course - are W-Lan, a set of linen and towels and parking in our own garage.....
where you might as well leave your car for a while if you brought it along. Because you just turn left outside of the house and take a 5 minutes walk to the university square which is right in the middle of the 'Altstadt'. Or you turn right - 5 minutes to the castle.
We are a German - American family and Heidelberg is our adopted city.
Comfortable and in the perfect location - few minutes walk to Altstadt & Castle. Owner really friendly!
We loved Volker's place. It is within minutes walking distance of the beautiful old town as well as the castle. The apartment is very charming, and was plenty spacious for the four of us. The kids loved the loft upstairs, their own little hideout. The internet was fast and stable.
The walls may be a bit thin, as we could hear other people at times. But they settled down before we went to bed, so that was not a problem.
Volker, the host, always answered our emails promptly, and was there to greet us when we arrived. Despite the sub-zero temperatures outside, he had a keg of beer tapped, just in case.
We hope to return to Heidelberg, and we'll definitely stay here again. We couldn't have wished for a better experience. Thank you!
I stayed with my daughter and husband and there was plenty of room. The apartment is very unique and chalet style. Parking was available which was a nice surprise. The castle and downtown are steps from the apartment. The owner's daughter greeted us on arrival and the owner showed up shortly after with a fresh carton of milk, no less. We were left to our own devices and it felt like a home away from home. Heidelberg is a beautiful city. Although busy it is not over run by tourists. The prices for museum and castle tickets are extremely reasonable as well.
Thank you to Volker and his family for an enjoyable stay.

We couldn't have asked for more. The apartment is exactly as described offering everything you need in the heart of Heidelberg. We stayed only one night but I would happily have stayed a week! Thank you Volker for the warm welcome, efficient handover of keys and instructions and of course for the snacks in the fridge as well.
This is the perfect holiday home for a family! We loved coming back to our cozy loft after exploring Heidelberg--just a short stroll away. The host is very nice and helpful. We will be back!
This incredible flat in the heart of Heidelberg was absolutely amazing. The views off the private terrace with personal keg were the highlight of our trip. Volker was a great host as well. I highly recommended staying here if you visit Heidelberg!
The location of the property was superb. However it would not be suitable for the disabled or for anyone who was not reasonably fit. To reach the apartment there are 67 steps from road level. A great bonus is the garage, as parking in Heidelberg is a problem; either hard to find, or expensive. The walk into the centre of the old town is a matter of minutes. To get back requires a short but steep climb. The apartment has been built by a DIY enthusiast and the finish is certainly less than professional; not a problem to me. The upper floor with a bedroom, bathroom and study, is very close to the sloping roof and so a lot of bending, especially for tall people, is required. Volker, the owner and host, is genial and friendly and gave us a very warm welcome. I was impressed by the very good, cold beer which is freely available and on tap on the patio. The patio is perfect for hot, summer days, as it is mostly in shade, being north facing. As well as the beer, there is a barbecue. I would certainly stay there again, if visiting Heidelberg.
