Aldstadt and Castle tour
We arranged a 2 hour casual walking tour with Cornelia, which started at the Bismarkplatz. She took us down through the Aldstadt and stopped and pointed out places of interest along the way (student prison, various faculty buildings, churches, shops and cafes/restaurants). Our next stop was the castle itself and we could choose 1 of 3 ways to reach it. The first was by furnicular (tram up the hill), the second was by 20 minutes winding road, and third was the most direct - 1,000 steps straight up. We wisely chose the furnicular option (especially since Cornelia hadn't ever taken it herself). It was Euro 7 per ticket, but well worth it. Once at the castle, she showed us all around, explaining some of the history of it to us. We stopped and took some cool pictures (see attached) and then took a combination of the winding road and stairs back down. Lastly, she took us to the pedestrian bridge where we ended our tour. It was a very informative and relaxing paced way to see the city and I would recommend folks to take this same tour themselves with Cornelia.
