Very disorganized boarding process with no explanations in English. You must watch out or your party can be split by the turnstiles meaning that one of them could be left behind - they just cut-off at some point - which left my husband having to jump the machine to keep with me and the kids. Big tour groups too -... More

Very modern trail, useful to reach the top of the castle or the peak of the koenigstuhl. Worth to take a ride with

The scenery as you travel up to the top is breathtaking. When you get there, Heidelberg looks like a Disney model village. Very quaint.

One has to reach the Kornmarkt from the main train station, for starting their uphill journey through the funicular. The funicular is divided into lower and upper, lower starting from Kornmarkt till the castle, the upper starts from the castle and ends at Molkenkur. The lower funicular is kinda enclosed, so no views to die for, just a journey.. On... More

We spent a hot afternoon up at the mountain - going up was a lot of standing in line. Especially the second part was difficult with the stroller. At the ground station there was a lift for disabled but only useable if you had a special key or so. Compared to the old downtown it is indeed much cooler up... More

This is well worth the cost (about 6 Euro extra) and takes around 20 mins. The climb is pretty impresive with a gradient of 40%. On top of the mountain you can see great views over the city and quite a nice park. In truth there is little there with the main resturant closed but there is a cafe for... More

We took the Bergbahn to the top of the Kohinstuhl and hiked for a few hours before returning down the hill. The first part of the journey is on the modern funicular but do not get out at the Schloss stay on it for the second stop. This was not clear so we exited with everyone else and then had... More

We drove By car up the hill to catch a nice view on Heidelberg. But the view is better from the castle or the philosophenweg. The tram itself is neither nice nor the track is worth seeing
