The cemetery on the former vineyard is one of the most beautiful churchyards in Germany. Even from a distance, the terraced grounds are striking.

In pre-Corona times, a visit to Heidelberg’s old town could be quite exhausting. Hordes of tourists meandered through the narrow streets, flooded the countless souvenir stores with an extremely high kitsch factor or almost went into ecstasy at the sight of the romantic Heidelberg Castle. They purposefully stormed the restaurants and reliably occupied every tourist hotspot that one would have liked to take a look at oneself in peace.
