Overview

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. Experience the history of Heidelberg in person behind the Renaissance façade of the Hotel zum Ritter St. Georg. Every floor and every corner of our hotel tells of the various epochs over the past few centuries.

This is a beautiful old hotel in the centre of the old part of town. The room was very comfortable and staff were very helpful; in particular, when we though something went missing from the room which ended up being our fault.More

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
