A trip on the Bergbahn is a must if you are visiting Heidelburg. My wife is scared of heights but even she sat at the front on the way down. I never got off at the castle but travelled up to the top . On the top is a cafe serving food and drinks and also a falconry. Whilst we... More

Went on Saturday afternoon, frequency was every 10 - 15 minutes. Filled the train til overflowing. €12 for adults and €10 for kids round trip. Price includes admission into castle. Ticket machine wasn't accepting credit cards, so had to wait in line at counter.

I think the frequency is low of riding. We had to wait kind a while to enter and the train was crowded as well. Also quite expensive in my opinion, but the view is nice and you can enter the part of the castle with ur ticket.

My husband and I rode the funicular one evening, hoping to have time to see the castle and check out the top of the hill. When we bought our tickets at about 4:30 pm, the woman at the desk told us that the castle closed at 6, so we would be better off touring the castle first and then riding... More

We were reverse tourists, staying in a hotel near the castle. We started our day already up the hill, so after touring the castle saw that our tickets included the Bergbahn and took a quick trip first up the hill to see what we could see, then down to the castle again and on down to the town. It is... More

What can you say about a 40 degree train ride up a mtn. Take pictures then go back down and tour Heidleburg Castle. Enjoy the ride and don't forget to talk with other travelers. What fun is it to travel and no say hi to others

The funicular has an old part and a new part. The new part takes you to the castle and beyond. The old part goes the last of the way up to the top, at quite a grade -- a feat of century-old engineering! We enjoyed the ride for itself, and it also left us with more energy to enjoy the... More

This a fun experience to take the funicular to the castle and if you have time you can further up to the top of Koenigstuhl( means King's throne). Leave car down in the garage in experience a wonderful view of Heidelberg and the river Neckar. If time permits get a guided tour of the castle.

Go to the top---you might be lucky like us and see an eagle. The view over Heidelberg was fantastic. There is a snack cafe there as well.
