All reviews guided tour heidelberg 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 beautiful city grounds ruins
We took the cable car from Heidelberg up to the castle, which is ornate and beautiful. Without a guided tour, however, we missed out on the history. I’d recommend a tour guide if you love the history of castles. There is a hotel and there...More
If you take the stroll the whole pedestrian route of Hauptstraße, you will be rewarded with a view of the castle. But if you really want to explore, skip Hauptstraße and go direct to the castle (the cable car is the shortest way)
Went here on a whim out of Frankfurt and it was great! Definitely make sure you take the tour of the inside of the castle as that is where most of the interesting things are. If you take the bus from the train station, make...More
Nice old castle. Staff are helpful. You can purchase a tour with a guide and access alot of areas within the castle. Otherwise you can purchase a ticket and guide yourself however you can not access certain areas. Nice view over the town and to...More
This place is amazing.
We had the chance to visit this castle during autumn season and this is just speechless.
Suitable for kids as well.
The only thing we recommend is that you take enough cash with you because they do not accept credit cards.
You can join it by cable car (with the entrance included) or go up from the center by feet by a beautiful way with stairs.
Not lot of inside places are open to be visited, except a museum of pharmacopoeia and a room where you...More
This is my favorite castle in Germany, nestled in the mountains. The courtyards surrounding the castle are peaceful and clean open spaces—perfect for exploring, having a picnic or photo-ops. You will have gorgeous views of the city from the castle. Castle entrance and tour fees...More
If you find yourself in Heidelberg please allow time to climb the hill and explore that castle grounds, you will be glad you did. The castle and the grounds are fascinating, but the real payoff is the view of the town.
No booking needed . No tour needed . Only if you need guidance visiting the castle , I guess guides are available, ask there . Take combined ticket for fonicular and entrance . Don’t miss the small pharmaceutical museum in... More

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
