Jaxon Diss thinks…

"It is literally beneath the castle, Next to the cable car to the top of the hill and a two minute walk to the old bridge. The staff are awesome everything we said we were going to go see they gave us…"

Street View


By Car: Take highway A5 from south (Freiburg/Basel) or north (Frankfurt), exit Heidelberg. Follow the signs to 'Altstadt/Schloss' (oldtown/castle), then follow the directions for parking deck 13. That's where you can park the car (16 €/24 hours). Or park in P11 for 2,50 € over night or 12,50 €/24 hours (7 minutes to walk). Free parking is tricky in Heidelberg. We let you know about the possibilities on request.

From the main station by bus: Take bus No 33 (from the 'Burger-King'-side of the station towards 'Koepfel/Ziegelhausen'). This line takes you straight to Lotte in about 15 minutes (leaves every 20 minutes during the day) for 1,20 €. Your stop is 'Rathaus/Bergbahn' after a 15 minutes ride. It's only about 50 meters to 'Lotte' from there. Look right after you got off the bus. You´ll see a cobblestone path which leads up to the castle. There it´s the 2nd house on the left. You can't miss it. Note: We don´t have a big sign - don´t walk up too far.
