What people are saying about Heidelberg

Sightseeing exhibition, a visit is absolutely worth it. On the one hand I am very impressed by the representation of the inside of a person - the possibility to show that with these plastinates is awesome. I also liked the common thread "The Anatomy of Happiness" that runs through the entire exhibition. The audio guide provides additional information about the individual stations - this is also very interesting and entertaining

Was a super interesting tour. Our guide Karsten Otte was very nice and gave us a lot of information about Heidelberg. We can recommend the tour to everyone. The mountain railway was so overcrowded that we walked from the castle to the old town. That wasn't a problem at all, and you'll be downstairs in ten minutes.

Very informative tour from a very friendly and knowledgeable guide! Would do the tour again anytime! TOP!!

Very interesting exhibition both in a medical and artistic context

Yes it was such a lovely trip and worth all the money.
