Philosophers' Way - Review

Overlooking the northern banks of the Neckar River, the Philosophers’ Way is a picturesque path located on a hill ideal for long walks, picnics and in general absorbing the gorgeous view of Heidelberg. The path itself winding through woods, vineyards and gardens is rightly named so, as during the Romantic Era it was often visited by philosophers, poets and such to reflect upon their creative solitude. Interestingly, it is said that the climate too here is very different from that in the valley below!

Even though it is a bit of a steep start and requires a little effort to climb the hill, you don’t regret it at all for the glorious sight later of the old town of Heidelberg. The path is well marked and with benches to rest at regular intervals.
