by Adam & Megan

Hilton Heidelberg is now open in the heart of the picturesque city, paying homage to the rich history and culture of the region and making it the latest addition in Germany for Hilton‘s flagship brand.

Following a significant investment programme, Hilton Heidelberg features 244 rooms and suites with contemporary design, aimed at providing a modern and comfortable stay. The hotel’s interior pays tribute to the rich literary heritage of Heidelberg, celebrated as a UNESCO “City of Literature,” and combines new construction with the preservation of the former iconic Hotel Schrieder property, first opened in 1845. 

Nestled in historic Heidelberg, famous for its Gothic architecture and as home to Germany’s first university, Hilton Heidelberg is just a stroll away from the Old Town, brimming with ancient buildings and quaint streets and squares. The hotel is also near to the famed Heidelberg Castle, celebrated for its Castle Illumination Days

Hilton Heidelberg offers king, deluxe, and executive rooms, as well as suites. Families and groups can book Confirmed Connecting Rooms for adjoining stays. The hotel features seven flexible meeting spaces, a large ballroom for up to 300 guests, a well-equipped fitness centre with Peloton Bikes, and two dining establishments, catering to both business and leisure travellers.

Culinary Journey: Schrieder’s Bar and Restaurant

Hilton Heidelberg offers a distinctive culinary journey at its two dining venues, Schrieder’s Bar and Schrieder’s Restaurant, named after the hotel’s founder.

Schrieder’s Bar provides a casual daytime atmosphere for coffee and informal meetings, transforming into a lively bar in the evening with signature cocktails, beers, and a selection of local and international wines.

The restaurant presents a contemporary take on traditional German cuisine and stands out with its elegant courtyard featuring a glass ceiling. Both establishments honour the hotel’s history, notably with the “Mark Twain Cocktail,” inspired by the author’s stay in Heidelberg and mention of the hotel in his book “A Tramp Abroad.”

A Diverse Destination 

Heidelberg is not only a cultural landmark but also a center for business and scientific research. The city hosts numerous large corporations and is recognised as one of Europe’s foremost scientific hubs, housing the prestigious European Molecular Biology Laboratory. The city’s commitment to education and science is further exemplified by the Botanical Garden of the University of Heidelberg, a serene haven of biodiversity.

For guests traveling to Heidelberg, Hilton Heidelberg is conveniently accessible from Frankfurt am Main Airport by car, train, or the direct Frankfurt Airport Shuttle, with direct stops at the hotel. Additionally, the hotel provides an underground car park with electric vehicle charging facilities.

The hotel is located at Kurfuersten-Anlage 1, Heidelberg, 69115, Germany. For more information, please visit: hilton.com/en/hotels/hdbbwhi-hilton-heidelberg/
