Heidelberg River Cruise Packages

A River cruise in Germany is the perfect way to see the rolling countryside, picturesque castles, and bustling modern cities of this fascinating country. To make things better, on a European River Cruise from Destination Oceans you will get to see multiple countries as you cruise lazily through Europe's many waterways. Heidelberg is a city in Baden-Wrttemberg, Germany. Heidelberg lies on the river Neckar at the point where it leaves its narrow, steep valley in the Odenwald to flow into the Rhine valley where, 20 km (12.4 miles) Northwest of Heidelberg, it joins the river Rhine at Mannheim. Heidelberg is part of a densely populated region called Rhein-Neckar-Triangle.

On a European River Cruise to Heidelberg with Destination Oceans you have lots to see if you so choose to do so. One of the biggest is Heidelberg Castle. The castle is a mix of styles from Gothic to Renaissance. Prince Elector Ruprecht III (1398 - 1410) erected the first representative building in the inner courtyard as a regal residence. The building was divided into a ground floor made of stone and framework upper levels. Another regal building is located opposite to the Ruprecht Building: The Fountain Hall. Prince Elector Philipp (1476 - 1508) is said to have arranged the transfer of the hall's columns from a decayed palace of Charlemagne to Heidelberg. n the 16th and 17th century the Prince Electors added two representative palace buildings and turned the fortress into a castle. The two dominant buildings at the eastern and northern side of the courtyard were erected during the rule of Ottheinrich (1556 - 1559) and Friedrich IV (1583 - 1610). Under Friedrich V (1613 - 1619), the main building of the westside was erected, the so called "English Building".
