During our stay in Germany, we decided to try this journey up the mountain. First, it is inexpensive compared to other attractions and as with the culture, don't feel rushed. You can start at the street level or at the castle level, depending on where you are. Take the train up the mountain. There are a few stops and you... More

The title says it all. Go all the way to the top and enjoy the view of the Nekkar valley. The songbirds were abundant and added to the ambiance.

Great view from the very top....go ALL the way up! The last part is very steep and looks scary but as you're riding it, it doesn't feel that way. Lots of fun!

The first couple times here, we did not take the funicular, because we figured we'd get some exercise and spend the extra money on another beer. It was not until later visits that we realized one's ticket into the castle was also good for 2 trips on the funicular (one up - one down). If you park below, you can... More

We made what is apparently a classic mistake and bought a ticket to the castle thinking it was at the top. The castle is not at the top so we had to find the second ticket window halfway up to get a ticket to the top. Fortunately we were there in May and there was not much of a line... More

the bergbahn is fine, but waiting time is very long. So if you want to go all the way up (including a transfer), make sure you have time.

There are multiple tickets on the Funicular, depending on where you want to go. The first stop is the castle, the second is included in the castle stop but stops further up and you can get great views of Heidelberg from the 2nd stop. You'll end to walk up the steps to get the best views. You can also transfer... More

Warning, it can be a lot cooler at the top than in Heidelberg! It is an interesting ride up and down such a steep grade. You can see the works that move the cars at the top. Plan for the extra time to take the funicular to the top when you go to visit the castle. You need to change... More
