Via naturae and forest adventure trail on the Königstuhl
The Königstuhl is a 567.8 meter high mountain and only a stone's throw away from Heidelberg's old town (7 km). Here you will find an oasis of peace and relaxation and have a fantastic view of Heidelberg and the Neckar valley.
With the Via naturae and the forest adventure trail, you will find two special forest paths, for learning for young and old.
Along the mountain road ("Bergstraße") the Burgensteig and the somewhat shorter and easier blossom path ("Blütenweg") from Darmstadt to Heidelberg lead over 120 km. On narrow and unspoilt paths, it leads past streams, meadows and vineyards and over 30 castles, palaces and places of worship can be discovered.
Numerous cycle paths lead through Heidelberg. The city is therefore an ideal starting point for exploring by bike or to make a stop on a trip. The Heidelberg bicycle city map shows the best bicycle connections and provides a lot of useful information about cycling in Heidelberg.
