Lotte - The Backpackers
Lotte is a unique old house. It is situated in the heart of old-town Heidelberg and its very close to the historic castle, the main shopping street, bars and restaurants.
This homely house offers eight guestrooms only, each with a stylistic individual interior decor and with an ambiance of living-room coziness of a family home.
We opened in June 2011 so everything is new - beds, kitchens, bathrooms etc. except our small curios everywhere.
On the first floor of this lovely old house we offer you newly renovated and refurbished dormitory-style accommodation. One dorm is for girls only - they also have their own bathroom close by. Use our new grandma-style kitchen or the cozy living-room.
On the second floor you are welcome to choose from two 60-style double-rooms and one 3-bed-dorm. Two bathrooms and a kitchen are for those guests only - enjoy the lovely view of the castle when having breakfast!

DirectionsShow MapHide Map
By Car: Take the A5 from south or north (Frankfurt), exit Heidelberg. Follow the signs to 'Altstadt/Schloss' (oldtown/castle), then the directions for parking deck 12. Thats where you can park the car (12 a day). Or park in P11 for 2,50 over night (7 minutes to walk). Lotte is opposite the 'Kornmarkt'-exit.
From the main station by bus: Take bus No 33 (from the 'Burger-King'-side of the station towards 'Kpfel/Ziegelhausen'). This line takes you for 1,20 straight to Lotte in about 15 minutes (leaves every 20 minutes during the day). Your stop is 'Rathaus/Bergbahn' after a 15 minutes ride. Its only about 20 meters to 'Lotte' from there. Take the first possible turn to the right. Its the alley which leads up to the castle (cobblestones). 2nd house on the left. You cant miss it.
Lotte is located in the oldest part of Heidelberg, very close to restaurants, many bars, popular sights and the main shopping street. We are 2 minutes walk from the Old Brigde and 1 minute only to the Hauptstrasse.
The walkway up to the castle starts right behind the house, just a few meters uphill.
If you like hiking take the funicular railway (station is opposite the hostel) up to the Koenigstuhl mountain, where you can take long or short tours with fantastic views.
