Very comfortable with fine regional cuisine - the Mensurstube


Not far from the picturesque old town, the Mensurstube is located in the hotel Hirschgasse. Indulge in our historical restaurant on the Neckar in Heidelberg allowing yourself to be carried away by the enchanting atmosphere.

In the oldest Mensurhaus in Germany, enjoy rustic hospitality, with fine rustic regional cuisine and traditional roots, here you'll find the best products - now even also in our online take away shop . A cozy and inviting, authentic atmosphere is perfect for a memorable get-together.

During a visit to the historic restaurant Mensurstube, you can experience history up close. Take a seat at our ancient tiled stove, where Mark Twain once sat. The heavy wooden panelling, on which many faded pictures of the Heidelberg fraternities and corps hang, tell of ancient times. Whimsical drinking vessels as well as wicker baskets let you recreate the student dueling traditions. A special highlight is the unique "Student Prince" museum.

Please be aware of scarce car parking space, due to building works in the hotel section.
