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. The Alte Universität (Old University) with its varied buildings is near the Hauptstraße, and behind the Marktplatz and Kornmarkt is the Völkerkundemuseum (ethnology museum) housed in the Palais Weimar. Why not stroll along the side streets? With narrow alleys and ivied houses they contribute to Heidelberg's charm and romance.
