Top of Heidelberg

If you are in Heidelberg - do go up the Königstuhl . It quite an interesting ride and the views from the top are spectacular! I especially recommend it in Autumn

Paid about 7 euros for a return ticket up and down the funicular. It was foggy at the time we visited and the attractions were closed. Not much to do but it was fun to walk around in the fog. Saw quite a few children sliding down the ice covered roads too!

I loved going to to the highest point possible with the funicular. The views are spectacular! I was lucky it was a clear day so you could see for a long distance. The prettiest part of the view though is Heidelberg itself and you have a great view of a picturesque portion of the city on the way up. I... More

Take the funicular and go a little further from the castle. The next stop leaves you at Molkenkur Hotel, with a great view and a good restaurant. Then take the old funicular, all made of wood, to go to the King's Throne, or Konigstuhl. There you see the whole region from the top, have a bar with beverages and snacks,... More

If you have an hour to spare and it is a clear (and hot) day, one of the best things to do in Heidelberg is to take the Funicular to the top of the mountain (Koenigstuhl). There are two funiculars - one new one and one older one. The new one will take you to the castle, where as the... More

The 150 years old funicular is a good example of German efficiency and engineering. It is also the fastest way to go to the castle, especially if you have to park the car… The ride was quick and smooth.

Though you can climb up the stairs all the way to the castle, the funicular is a very nice a fun way to go up there, too. Don't panic about the huge lines - they disappear the minute the wagon arrives. A short ride and you are there. The ticket includes the entrance to the castle and Pharmacy museum.

Loved these rides on both the new and old style carriages. Views are great so agree you should go to the top if you have time. Also enjoyed the visit to the castle included in the price although we just wandered around for a short time. The apothecary museum is worth a look, lots of chemist shops recreated in different...

For $7 you can ride up and down the hill, to go all the way to the top it was more. Unfortunately today was bad weather, so we didn't think it would be worth it for a poor view. But on a not cloudy day, I would like to ride the funicular to the top.
