Looking for a great restaurant after a day of sightseeing in Heidelberg? If you love Schnitzel, check out "Schnitzelbank", a hole-in-the-wall-restaurant that gets consistently glowing reviews from locals and visitors alike. Sit down at long wooden tables, often shared with other guests, and choose from a menu (also available in English) that features huge portions of Swabian delicacies such as "Maultaschen" (Swabian Ravioli filled with meat and vegetables) and "Käsespätzle" (egg noodles topped with cheese and sautéed onions). But it is of course the Schnitzel that takes center stage here; a tender veal cutlet with a golden brown breadcrumb crust, accompanied by "Bratkartoffeln", crispy fried potatoes. The restaurants fills up quickly, so make reservations. Bauamtsgasse 7, 69117 Heidelberg, Phone 06221-21189.
