The Koenigsstuhl Bergbahn is your perfect start of an incredible day trip. You can book one way or round trip and go with the new ( build in 2005 ) train up to the Heidelberger Castle at the first stop. Here you can explore the ruins of the castle and its history and the train ticket also includes the entrance... More

Definitely a better option than the trek up. But easy to walk down from the castle. Got the first car up, so only us in the car. Note that the credit card machine is broken, so you can currently only pay with cash!

The funicular departs from the old town till the top of the mountain that also houses the Heidelberg Castle. It stops at the castle, at around halfway up the mountain, and then at the top of the mountain (you have to change carts once to go from the bottom to the top of the mountain). My tip is to try...

We bought our combo tickets at the base of the tram/funicular, and they included roundtrip tramfare to the top of Königstuhl with a stop at Heidelberg Castle (Schloss) either on the way up or down, your choice. Price of a ticket was only 6 euros, or about $8 USD. It was definitely worth it! We visited in November and had... More

The cable car is a fun way to get a great view of the whole town. You dont need much time up there but the view is worth it and without the physical strain.

when visiting the Schloss, first ride the bergbahn all the way to the top for the views and a nice walk. then come back down and do the tour of the Schloss.

Well worth the ride to the top! Could get huge queues in peak tourist season. Enjoy! Maybe better going in the morning as the large tour groups go round 10am most days.

1st stop is the schloss (castle), which is undergoing some renovations now. We got off and were one of the fist for the 2nd leg up, so we sat in the lowest (first) car. Great view. It costs more to go up to the last leg, unless you bought the right ticket. We bought our tickets at the Tourist Bureau... More

Well worth the 6 euros return trip to the castle which also enabled you to visit the next stop higher up and included entrance to the castle.
