The fiunicular is located at the Korn Market at the end of the old town. Directly under the castle. It is a great way to get up to the castle with a wonderful view. I don't remember it going on further, will check it out next time. I have a terrtible fear of heights, but this was safe and level... More

Recommended transport for viewing the castle and then travelling even higher up to get stunning views over Heidelberg and the region. Perfectly safe even if scared of heights!

Wow, what a view and what Funicular. Probably one the best I have been on in the world. It isn't advertised much but the old original funicular runs from the second stop to the top of the mountain. Most people get out at the second stop as this is the castle but pay the extra and take the next carriage... More

You can walk up the mountain to the castle on an old cobblestone road, which is really cool. However, if you're tired, take the tram to the top (and down as well). It's a pretty slick ride.

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
