Heidelberg Castle Illumination


Several times a year the Heidelberg Castle Illumination takes place. This firework around the Heidelberg castle, only a few minute ride from the hotel in Leimen, counts as one of the most popular events in Heidelberg and attracts more and more visitors every year. Since more than 100 years this firework gets arranged to remember of the destruction of the Heidelberg Castle within the war of palatine succession in the year 1693.
