Unfortunately is the gate under reconstruction and it is covered therefore one can only guess based on the picture on the screen how wonderful it is. At the other hand it is only one of plenty of interesting landmarks in Heidelberg so it shouldn't stop...More

The towers were said to have been put in place to intimidate visitors from across the river and to show that Heidelberg was a city of import. When we visited, unfortunately, the towers were wrapped for renovations, so we didn't get to be too impressed....More
