We went to the University museum because it was included on the ticket that we had purchased for the Student Prison. Whilst some of the exhibits had no engish, many did, and we found it a really interesting experience, especially the frank and (seemingly) honest account of the university during the Nazi years to the end of the war. A real bonus was the lovely lady who then took us up to the University hall and showed us around it before taking us to the older student prison - she told us some really interesting things about each and was great.

It is a 600 years old university and the university also is Germany's oldest. It's worth to visit when you in the Heidelberg area.

Visiting the oldest university in Germany was a highlight of our trip to Heidelberg for my husband. However, don't expect to see a lot of ancient buildings, as very few survive. Most of the current university was built about 1931, with American funds. The architecture is very traditional, so you wouldn't necessarily guess it's 20th century origins. It was, nonetheless, a very worthwhile visit. We even went into the library and wandered around in it for a bit--very impressive, and seemingly open to the public since we were able to just walk right in.

Walk around the Old University, the oldest university in Germany, with its old buildings, student prison and wonderful library. The visit is a must if you are in Heidelberg, it has been the heart of the city for centuries.
