Dr. Caroline von Kretschmann

It is a true postcard motif, which the Heidelberg visitor can enjoy while walking along the Philosophenweg, because from here you can enjoy a wonderful view over the old town into the country. Heidelberg is rightly regarded as one of the most beautiful cities in Germany - and not just in modern times. A harmonious blend of city and river amid gently rolling hills has been an inspiration to the artists of the Romantic period. Guests of Der Europäische Hof experience this special atmosphere up close. The hotel is located in the heart of downtown.

Not only the city on the Neckar, but the 5 star property alone is worth a trip to the south of Germany. The fourth generation family-run European-style hotel, built in the style of a classic grand hotel, makes the stay an opulent experience. The 118 rooms and suites, furnished with style and love, leave nothing to be desired.

Guests can relax in the Panorama Spa, the name says it all, because from here, the view extends far over the city to the Heidelberg Castle. The Panorama Spa is the "place to be" when it comes to relaxation and beauty. In addition to a wellness program with classic spa treatments such as massages, the spa visitors have the opportunity to work with personal trainers to improve their fitness. There is also access to the health services offered by seven specialist practices.

After a stay at the wellness retreat, the European Court lures guests with another highlight - the gourmet cuisine of the hotel, well known far beyond Heidelberg. The team, lead by Julien Even, spoils foodies with regional delicacies and international specialities, any time of day and on any occasion: simply the best of the best.
Those who appreciate the advantages of a complete apartment but do not want to miss the amenities of a luxury hotel, will be accommodated in one of the three serviced apartments and enjoy the advantages of a city apartment on the pulse of Heidelberg.


Traversed by the Neckar, Heidelberg is one of the warmest regions in Germany, fig and olive trees thrive here. On the "balcony of the City", exotic plants grow along the Philosophenweg.

All rooms and suites are individually decorated and have a common trademark. Harmonious colours, exclusive fabrics and elegant parquet floors create a stylish feel-good atmosphere.


High tea and delicacies from the pâtisserie are just as much a part of the culinary delights package as the gourmet cuisine by Julien Schon. The event calendar of the hotel offers events for connoisseurs all year round.
