Apart from exploring the many attractions the city has to offer, visitors can opt for day tours to neighboring places. One popular activity is the bicycle trip to the town of Hanau, 27 km away. This trip runs parallel to the south bank of the Main river and offers glimpses of endless green meadows and picturesque villas situated on the outskirts of the city. One of the most popular day trips is the Heidelberg, home to Germany’s oldest university, the Heidelberg University. The town is an hour’s drive from the city and has the majestic Heidelberg Castle which looms over the town. The town itself has a young vibe since it is mostly filled with students around the globe.
