Located right in the heart of the Old Town, opposite the Town Hall, the Hotel zum Ritter St. Georg is an integral part of Heidelberg's historic townscape. This magnificent building has attracted millions of visitors since it was built in 1592.

425 year old hotel bang in the middle of tourist town. Clean, friendly, helpful and reasonably efficient. Odd shaped rooms - we had no room for bedside tables- with no a/c. It was OK but once was enough.More
