Who would have thought it would take a whole afternoon to get to Heidelberg but true to form, Eloise and I managed it! Excitedly chatting about what Australian food we could make for dessert on Christmas day we somehow completely failed to notice that we had arrived at K-town where we were to transfer trains and were heading back to Landstuhl... Fail!!
Following our scenic route we made it to Heidelberg late afternoon, heading to the old town to see the ...
Today we took a trip to the small but beautiful town of Heidelberg, most well known for its castle. We had lunch in a German restaurant, where I had cordon bleu. After lunch we took a long walk up to the castle. Although partly destroyed it was still beautiful, we went on a guided tour through the castle and saw many wonderful sites, especially the gardens where we had a wonderful view over the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Die Hirschgasse Heidelberg
Beautiful! My wife and I spent 3 fantastic days in the Hotel Die Hirschgasse in April 2006 and we were mildly surprised by this beautiful, quiet and unpretentious hotel that is truly one of the best kept secrets in Heidelberg. The room was fantastic; the food excellent; and, service exceeded that which is typically found in a 5-star hotel. Thank you Mrs. Kraft (the owner) for an awesome vacation in Heidelberg. We look forward to returning one day in the future.
A Little Piece of Heaven
We have just returned from a 3 night stay at what will henceforth be one of our favourite hotels in the world.
From the moment we arrived Frau Kraft gave us a very warm welcome, and the helpfulness and warmth of all of the staff continued thoughout our stay.
We had a lovely two bedroomed suite, with two bathrooms and a lovely sitting room which made it feel like a home from home. The food was outstanding, and the history attaching to the hotel makes it the kind of place that you want to tell your friends about (a bit of boasting). To cap it all, it is perfectly situated just over the river from the town centre (less than 10 minutes walk), and Heidelberg, the Neckar Valley and nearby Odenwald are perfect examples of the true, beautiful, country Germany.
This hotel is on the opposite side of the river to the old town of Heidelberg. Its location is excellent. The old town is a short walk away. The view from the hotel is towards the castle and the town itself. Behind the hotel is some fabulous walking tracks through the surrounding forest. The forest is magical and you can easily spend between an hour to a whole day walking through it.
An Unforgettable Experience
This hotel was built in 1472 and is filled with antiques and original artifacts from that period. The tables in the Mensurstube restaurant have carved names dating back to that time and records of duels fought there.The breakfasts were fabulous. The best dining experience we have ever experienced was in their more formal dining room.It truly was a 5 star meal.I will never forget it. Our room was quaint, large and cozy. The bed was great, as were the pillows and down comforter.It was VERY clean and neat and there were great terrycloth robes and slippers waiting for us. There was a mini bar and the only thing lacking was wi-fi. A wonderful experience and the staff was just lovely. Heidelberg is a fabulous city. Don't miss the castle!
The Hirschgasse is a gem!
Heidelberg is one of my favorite places to visit in Germany. Having been to several hotels and restaurants in the area for business and pleasure, there is nothing that compares to the Hirschgasse. The service and restaurants are by far the best of any I've experienced in the area. The location is ideal for sightseeing, and is found in one of the prettier areas of town...yet quiet enough to relax and be away from the tourists. I would highly recommend dining there. We dined at the more casual Mensurstube, which we found an absolute treat. The food, wine, and service were excellent. If you don't mind spending a little more, the Hirschgasse is the way to go when in Heidelberg!
Delightfully Luxurious Yet Cozy
Just returned from a weeklong visit in October. Die Hirschgasse is elegant, yet not ostentatious, luxurious, comfortable & charming in every respect. Both restaurants are superb and the service warm & friendly. I have traveled all over the world & would put this on my list of favorite romantic getaways!
I reserved a room in this hotel based on the reviews here. I would suggest avoiding this hotel. First, they neglected to place a welcome plackard for me, but the other guests had plackards. I guess people with jewish sounding names are not welcome at the hotel. Also, all the other rooms in the hotel had names such as 'Wunderbar Suite'. Mine had no name, and so I've named it the 'Jude Suite'. The room was rather plain and basic, not posh, charming, and elegant like the other rooms (I peaked when they were cleaning). The staff was incredibly stiff, even by german standards. Inbetween thier forced smiles I could sense they didn't like me. When I wanted to eat dinner at 10:30 p.m. they arrogantly told me that it would be impossible since the kitchen was closed even though a couple of dozen people who were still eating!
Positively enchanting & luxurious!
Die Hirschgasse is a true "home-away-from-home" hotel. Where else do they place your name above your room's doorbell? Such class! Everything about this stunning hotel is enchanting...from the gorgeous suites, each individually decorated in Laura Ashley fabrics, the world-class amenities found in each suite and bathroom, the superb food in both of Die Hirschgasse's dining rooms, to the warm welcome extended by the hotel's charming staff. Die Hirschgasse exudes European ambience and, while a bit of a splurge and about a 10-minute walk to the Aldstadt, it is one of my favorite places to stay in Germany. Pamper youself with a stay here. You won't regret it!
Just got back from a trip through Switzerland, Alsace and ending in Heidelberg. While there we stayed three nights at Die Hirschgasse, a wonderful old (500 yrs) hotel that was about as charming as you could imagine. We had a lovely suite that was most impressive for it's details - I mean, how often do you have a live, blooming orchid plant on your dressing table!!?? We ate in the Mensurstube, their "casual" restaurant and had some of the best food of our entire trip - I can only imagine what their more upscale Gourmet restaurant must be like. It's across the river from the main town of Heidelberg, about a 15 minute walk. Not a big deal but after we discovered that the breakfast was 17 euros apiece, we wished we were closer to an alternative. Regardless, it's a marvelous place and well worth a visit!
