 A famous souvenier that you can buy in Heidelberg is a chocolate called Student Kiss. It was created by Fridolin Knösel, owner of the Café Knösel, located at the heart of the Old Town in Heidelberg.

Given as a present, the Student Kiss was a discreet way to send a sweet message among the students at that time.

Nowadays, it is a sweet symbol and a charming souvenier.

 

Apart from its touristic side, Heidelberg is also known for its world-wide famous university. Founded in 1386, it is the oldest university in Germany. Today the university has 12 faculties and offers degree programmes in 100 disciplines.
