Be on time....the thing closes with "german puenktlichkeit"..Views are beautiful, the ride is smooth and actually both(2) funiculars are great...the older one even has an accessible machine room (glass walls)... There is a small Kiosk on the very top selling some kiosk food and beverages. Besides view & walk nothing to do at the very top.

You can buy a ticket to the schloss or pay for a return ticket to the very top. The 12 euro return ticket to the top also gives entry into the schloss itself. You change from a more modern train to an older version to reach the last part where you have stunnibg views, telescopes and a cafe. There is... More

We decided to pay the 12 euros each and go right to the top; past the castle stop onto the mid point stop where we changed from the modern funicular to the old one to the top. When we got to the top there was a falconry show but it was only on at 11.30 am so we missed it!... More

This was a fun way to get to the castle, and the views from the higher stops are beautiful. Our kids had fun doing this.

It's always fun to go up a mountain by funicular, especially when it is as steep as the one in Heidelberg. The views are stunning and up the Königstuhl there are many excellent hiking paths. It is so quiet up there, you wouldn't believe a big city is nearby.

Nice old funicular, nice experience, it links the Heidelberg castle to the old town. I loved it. I took it after I visited the castle. Still a bit crowded and have to wait in queue until you get in, but it worths..takes max. 10 min to get down. The fee was around 5 - 6 euros, as far as I... More

This is a great attraction by which to access Heidelberg Castle. 6 Euros takes you to the castle by modern funicular. The journey takes about 10 minutes. There are a few seats in each carriage and plenty of standing space with rails to hold onto. If you want to go beyond the castle, then take the older funicular right up... More

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
