I’ll be in Heidelberg Germany for the last week of the month – any recommendations from locals for good places to pick up games, sales, or other gaming things of note.

Thanks

Hello Peter,

sorry to tell you that the shop of Heidelberger Spieleverlag 'Heidelbear' has been closed. The company still exists but only as a publisher/reseller.
The other big shop called Knoblauch has also been closed (it was one of the oldest toy shops around).

Rhight now there is no good shop in Heidelberg any longer only a Toy R Us is left.
There are a some shops left in the Rhein-Neckar area:

In Mannheim (west of HD, 25 min by car, train):

Wizards Well (RPG, Tabletop, CCG and few boardgames) http://www.wizards-well.de/
Fantasy Forest (RPG, Tabletop, CCG and very few boardgames) http://www.fantasyforest.de/
Spielzeugschachtel (toys and boardgames, good varitey but high prices)
Urmel next door to Spielzeugschachtel (very few boardgames)


In Viernheim (NW of HD, 35 min by car, train a bit longer via Mannheim):

Magnus Spiele http://www.magnus-spiele.de
also an internet-shop, a lot of boardgames. Small Shop but big warehouse, just ask what you are looking for. Beware of the cumbersome opening hours.

Vedes (a chain all over southern Germany)
located at the Rhein-Neckar-Zentrum shopping mall. There is a Toys R Us also.

There is another shop in Wiesloch (South of HD, 30 min by car/train)
Spielwaren Neusser
Haven't been there yet. But some people do give him praise.

Have a nice time in Heidelberg and make sure to visit the Weihnachtsmarkt in Heidelberg or Mannheim (get some Gluehwein).

Greetings
Ferendra
