If you are coming to Heidelberg and would love to enjoy some traditional German food you must visit this restaurant. A perfect location close to the river and the old bridge. You won't be disappointed

Cool location on the banks of the river and at the foot of the old bridge offering amazing views. Love the food here which serves hearty portions of traditional German food like Beef roulade with apple and red cabbage.
