They say the Americans spared the city during the war because they wanted somewhere nice for their occupying forces to stay in.
I think the same thing's said about Heidelberg.

The area around the train station isn't all that great but after about a 10 minute walk you reach the city center and it really has a lot of 19th century splendor which can't be found in too many other western German cities.
