Heidelberg - Bars & Nightlife

Partner logo

Heidelberg is vivacious and full of life, as befits a university town. Nighttime revellers have an endless array of ways and places to congregate, from rustic student pubs to nightclubs, jazz clubs, and music clubs.

Pub Mile "Untere Strasse"

Untere Strasse ("Lower Street", parallel to Hauptstrasse) is reminiscent of a mediterranean old-town alleyway. Unusual boutiques are side by side with novel student pubs, and night life pulsates here throughout the week.
