Hotel Die Hirschgasse Heidelberg

Mentioned by Mark Twain in his book, ‘A Tramp Abroad’ Hotel Die Hirschgasse Heidelberg is a romantic 15th-century inn hidden away in a little side valley in the pretty town of Heidelberg. The oldest hotel in this ancient university city, it was the site for student duelling contests and has a museum in one of its two dining rooms. Expect lovely castle views and a comfortable walk into Old Town.

Outside Hotel Die Hirschgasse Heidelberg, the white walls and pretty shuttered windows lead to snug interiors with wood beams and exposed stone walls, rich coloured fabrics, floral prints, artworks and a mix of antique and contemporary furniture. The ambience is cosy and very friendly.

Take an aperitif on the rose terrace before dining in the museum restaurant, Mensurstube. For fine dining, eat in Le Gourmet for French Mediterranean cuisine. Try a wine tasting session in Hotel Die Hirschgasse’s cellars to determine which wine you would prefer to drink with your dinner.
