The more fit, the better for tackling this hike but the reward is a gorgeous view of the entire city of Heidelberg and the Neckar River. Once at the top, you become aware of the great use made of the Philosopher's Way by locals in pursuing their athletic workouts. An added bonus to checking out this walk is an introduction to the less touristy side of the river. Bring your camera--No bad pictures!

Came here out of curiosity. Some nice views, and as I walked along the views became better & better.
The end of this walk is at an old Nazi site, very weird & strangely beautiful.
Enjoy!

It's quite hard beacuase of the stairs but it's defenitely worth it. It's the perfect place to spend the afternoon after visiting the city and enjoy the beautiful sunset!

Trekked uphill to thisn beautiful viewpoint. Nice escape from the city below and great views of the old castle and the old town. Definitely take the walk if you enjoy exploring and want another perspective of Heidelberg.
