From Heidelberg Central Station

Leave Heidelberg central station ("Hauptbahnhof") through the exit left of the main exit. Bus and tram stops are in front of the gate. Tickets for central Heidelberg ("Großwabe Heidelberg") can be purchased from machines, a ticket counter or the bus/tram drivers. Consider buying a 24-hour ticket ("Ticket 24") or a ticket for five trips ("Mehrfahrtenkarte") depending on what you need. Take either
  • bus number 34 towards "Ziegelhausen" or 734 towards "Heiligkreuzsteinach" and leave it at "Bergstraße". Albert-Ueberle-Straße is on the opposite side of the street. Alternatively, take
  • tram number 5 towards "Schriesheim" and leave it at "Brückenstraße", then walk back and turn left into "Neuenheimer Landstraße" and follow it until you see Albert-Ueberle-Straße on the left, or
  • take any tram or bus line from the central station to "Bismarckplatz", leave it there and walk across the bridge (see the map).

From Frankfurt Airport

There are essentially two ways to reach Heidelberg from Frankfurt Airport. First, there is the Lufthansa bus, which stops behind the Crowne Plaza hotel in central Heidelberg. Second, there are trains from Frankfurt airport to Heidelberg via Mannheim. The Lufthansa bus takes about 75 minutes, the train just short of an hour.

From Stuttgart Airport

Take the S-Bahn to Stuttgart main station and switch to regular trains there.

From Hahn Airport

Some low-fare airlines (e.g. Ryanair) serve Hahn rather than Frankfurt airport. Hahn airport is connected to Heidelberg via the Hahn Express bus line.
