The Hauptstraße (Main Street) leads from the Bismarckplatz across the Old town to the Karlstor. The first two thirds of the lively Hauptstraße is a pedestrian area. No cars, no trams, perfect for a stroll! You will find the longest shopping mile in Germany here! More than a third of Heidelberg's shops feature on the Hauptstraße and its side streets. There is a large choice of snack bars, cafes and restaurants, and there are a number of shops, where useful, expensive, antique, tasty, cheap, items and junk are sold. Culture also appears here: the Kurpfälzische Museum offers culture and history. The Zimmertheater and the Stadttheater (town theater) are worth a visit in the evening.
