Spent a few days and nights here in 1988. So it was time for a revisit, and, the place is just as lively and fun. Happy memories and would highly recommend this place for a night out with friends

This is more than a restaurant. It is a symbol of college life in old Heidelberg. As a student drinking pub, it has drawn young & old for years. As a GI in Heidelberg we frequented Seppl often. Drinking games are popular. Students will chug...More
