Best access from the big street from Heidelberg to Wieblingen. Parking for bikes possible everywhere near the street, parking for cars maybe in the center of Wieblingen and then walk to the Neckar. Multiple small paths down to the river (hidden at some places). Watch out, can be slippery and muddy after rainfalls and in winter. Paths are narrow between bushes in some parts, so the spot is suitable for adventurous birders. Some info boards at the road/bikeway.
