Beach on the Neckarlauer
Get vacation vibes – in the center of the city
In the center of the Old Town this summer, Heidelberg will once again provide a vacation-inspired atmosphere: As of June 30th on the Neckarlauer in front of the Stadthalle (Heidelberg Convention Center), directly on the water, you’ll find a sandy beach complete with a beach bar, lounge chairs, benches and awnings. The bar opens starting at 5pm on weekdays and as of 3pm on weekends until sunset – whenever the sun is shining. The beach can be used even when the bar is closed.
Many Heidelberg natives and guests discovered the Neckar Beach on the Neckarlauer last summer. Planning has been adapted and improved based on last years’ experience. There is a larger sandy area which stretches from the shore until the wall near the street. The bar is on a trailer that can easily be removed in the case of rising water levels. And new awnings have been added.
