All reviews guided tour beautiful castle pharmacy museum wine cellar largest wine barrel cable car the river walk up funicular railway great view interesting history worth the trip old town walk around grounds ruins views
We visited with a guide who made it come alive with its stories. Very romantic past. The structure itself is pretty amazing and one can imagine what it might have been in the past. Ruins always evoke a wonderful story.
Very impressiv castle above the old town of Heidelberg. Altough it is ruined, the view is spectacular down to the town and the river. An entrance fee has to be paid, but it is worth it. A giuded tour is also possible. Possibilities for eating...More
The views from Heidelberg Castle are worth seeing so pick a sunny day to visit .
8€ for adults and less for concessions .The walk up is fairly short but quite steep ! Make sure you go to the end of the gardens to get...More
If you're into history, the Heidelberg Schloss is the romance of two royals from different worlds who truly fell in love, a perhaps not-so-wise political decision that had major religious-political ramifications, and perhaps the world's largest wine barrel/cask. In order to get the most out...More
You can get there following a tiny street, rather narrow and picturesque. Palace has an amazing garden and open space, with fantastic view over the city. I can imagine students coming here to read and learn. For me though this was a wonderful experience of...More
The outside of the castle is very nice for a walk, specially with good weather.
The price to get inside is quite high and there not something of particular interest to see... Can be avoided the inside.
Heidelberg Palace has been the highlight of our visit so far. The views from the palace down towards the town and river are truly breathtaking. Parts of the palace have been restored and the pharmacy museum really is worth spending an hour or so in....More

You don't need to book anything in advance. Just make sure you make yourself familiar with opening times before getting there. The castle and funicular are open every day, but most museums are closed on Mondays. We were there last November on the first Monday of the Christmas Market when most attractions were shut and the ones that were open shut at 4 and we still had a great time. I assume in September there will be longer opening hours and the river cruise may still be running.

As I’ve already pointed out in my review, there is a lot of stairs, cobblestone & uneven paths. That’s not to say it’s impossible for a wheelchair to get about, just be mindful that’s all. Im not sure if a wheelchair would fit in to use the vehicular cable car. Unless you could fold it up for them & carry it on. These cars don’t have a lot of room. Once up though, (1 stop) the castle grounds & gardens are quite easy to push a wheelchair around. The walk around the lower ramparts & garden is quiet flat. Some inside parts maybe off limits due to the narrow passageways & steps up & down. But outside still has the best views of the town. The old town itself is quite easy to get around. I even had lunch in a outside restaurant that day & the lady on the next table was sat in a wheelchair!!! So it’s not impossible. Heidelberg is a beautiful old town. In my view it maybe worth the effort to try & visit. If you require anything else? Please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Mike
