Der Altstadt Gundel 

Hauptstraße 212 69117 Heidelberg

This bakery, café, and cake shop offers a wide selection of scrumptious baked goods and items.  It is a relatively small shop, located near the Universitätsplatz and conveniently situated right in front of a bus stop.  There were a large variety of items, including pretzels, brownies, and, of course, traditional baked goods.

I visited the bakery in the afternoon.  I browsed through the glass windows to find something to try.  There was a big hulking piece of bread with powdered sugar on top, called a Gugelhupf.  It cost a total of 3,60 EUR (100 g = 1 EUR).  Not too bad.

It tastes really soft and a bit sweet.  There are clusters of delicious almonds and raisins inside that make it quite wholesome.



Great selection of baked goods.  Only a few seats inside for patrons.  Clean and beautiful bakery.

Overall – 4 stars

  • Gugelhuft – 4/5
  • Service – 5/5

  1. The Gundel is my favorite bakery in Heidelberg! Definitely the best!!! Their baked goods taste very fresh, their prices are reasonable and you can tell they are a traditional bakery and don’t belong to the big bakery chains!
