This castle is the perfect place to spend the afternoon. There are beautiful gardens and fountains. The lawns are soft and green and great for a picnic while exploring the castle. There are several ways to hike up to the castle. If you aren't one for hiking, you can take the cable car up or drive up as there are plenty of parking lots around the castle.

Parts of the castle are still under renovation, but that just gives you a great feel for all the history that has taken place here.

Entire city is a must for any visit to Germany. Schloss is spectacular. Many beautiful parks,plazas and vistas. The Neckar River valley is picturesque. This is a great place to sit outside over a beer or glass of wine with dinner a people watch.

I loved touring the castle and learning about the history from the tour guide . The intricate wood carvings in some of the rooms were amazing and the view from the top is breathtaking. Walking on the huge wine barrel was kind of cool too. We took a tram to get up there and that added to the fun.

We recently visited Heidelberg and of course wanted to see the castle. A guided tour is well worth the money as it's very informative. The castle has a fascinating history that we found very interesting. There are lots of tourists but we managed to get close enough to everything to get a good idea of what this place used to be. It is a definite must to put on your list if you get to this area.
