A good way to get to the top fantastic views from the summit. You can the walk down to the castle and town. better than walking uphill save your legs for the rest.

Whilst the funicular is good for accessing the castle (and this part is reasonably priced), the historic funicular to the top of Konigstuhl is too expensive for what it offers. Requiring a separate ticket, you obtain access to the top of the 'hill' and higher views of the area but it is not really worth the extra dollars (or certainly... More

We weren't able to go all the way to the top because of the cloud cover, but we went as far as they would allow and it was enjoyable. It's a quick trip, nothing flashy, but worth the cost.

Since we'd travelled to Heidelberg to go on this historic train ride, we went up all the levels even though it was foggy at the top; it was also below zero (early December) and as the train went up higher and higher we got to snow laying on the ground - a treat for our teens from Australia. So we... More

Girlfriend and I decided to take the funicular up to the castle vice walking. It's all professionally done of course, given the amount of people constantly taking it up the mountain. We were there during the Christmas Market season (such a blast!). There was no queue so we were able to get on the next funicular. The ride itself was... More

My husband and I took our hard-to-impress teens up the funicular to the castle and even they enjoyed it! We tried to buy tickets all the way to the top but the guy at the ticket counter kindly warned us that there was cloud cover at the top which would prevent the gorgeous views we were hoping to see. So... More

The Funicular can take you to the Heidelberg Castle (first stop) where you can have a very nice view of Heidelberg or you can do a picnic in the gardens of the Castle. If you like to walk you can get off on the third stop where you can choose one of the tracks in the forest. You should have... More

The Bergbahn consists of two parts - a relatively modern funicular up to the castle area, then an older, slightly rickety but perhaps more interesting train up to the "King's Throne." I opted for the whole ride (12 Euros up and back). I asked the young woman from whom I bought the ticket if I should ride to the top... More
