We visited in peak season , lots of tourist , but the grounds and large and easy to get around. There is a tram going up and down , but it is worth the punishment to take the 300+ stairs going up and the tram down. The gardens and buildings taking the stairs are worth the effort. Get there early as the tours into the castle closes at 16h00 and you can still walk around the castle grounds and enter the big wine barrel , you cannot enter the castle. It really is beautiful with stunning views from the top

We should have given ourselves more time. I've heard the gardens are fabulous, but we weren't able to go see them. The world's largest wine cask is worth a photo op, and it's great that they offer tours of the castle in English. There is a fascinating exhibit of the history of German apothecaries. The tram ride up to the castle is included in the price of admission. We didn't know that, so we climbed the equivalent of 17 flights of stairs. Good workout. It made the view at the top breath-taking. Or maybe we were just out of breath. :)

The castle was destroyed by a fire and never rebuilt. What you see are the ruins. It also offers a beautiful view of the city.

This is a huge castle on top of the mountain and it overlooks beautiful Heidelberg, consequently, you can see the castle from many places in the town. It is beautiful to look at fromt he town and equally as beautiful to see the town from the castle grounds.

You can walk up (& down) or take a cable car. We took the cable car up, but walked down and it is a quiet little walk back to the town.

The castle is on beautiful grounds and there is a lot to see. Don't forget to check out the winery and the 2 large wine vats. The first one you see is huge, but wait... you see one even bigger with a dance floor on top. You can walk up there and dance too. It's not a big dance floor, but still impressive.

One of the cook things (we thought) was the sundial type clock on the side of the building (I will add a photo). It was not expensive and it was well worth seeing. You can do the simple tour or go more in depth and see more.

WHen you get done, go to the old bridge and look back up at the castle. Enjoy. It is must when in Heidelberg

Unfortunately we only had limited time to explore the palace and its grounds, because of the structure of a tour.

For those with more time to visit, I would recommend getting the funicular railway from the town to the palace; you need to this early in the morning or there will be a lot of waiting around. Our tour tried to book us tickets for this but because of the wait, we were taken in our coach to the palace entrance.
