Opposite the old town, at the foot of the Heiligenberg, lies the Neuenheim district.
Residents particularly appreciate the village-like character around the marketplace with its weekly market, the proximity to the city center, and the green residential neighborhoods. Neuenheimer Feld is home to numerous scientific institutes and research facilities, such as the German Cancer Research Center and renowned university hospitals. Worth seeing for visitors are, among others, the Neckar meadow, the zoo, and the botanical garden. The Philosophenweg (Philosophers' Path) with its grandiose view over Heidelberg offers a fantastic opportunity to seamlessly cross the Schlangenweg (Snake Path) at the Alte Brücke (Old Bridge) into the Old Town.
