Seeing the castle from a distance is awesome, seeing the gardens is awesome, but paying 6 euros to see the interior, which is just a bunch of tourists and pretzel cafés..... not so awesome

There are so many of these castles throughout Germany. This one is lovely set high on a hill overlooking the old city and river. You can’t tour the castle but you can take some lovely pictures of this and the view of the town. Possibly the best thing to do in Heidelberg.

Beautiful castle - what we got to see of it. And great view of the city. It’s disappointing not to be able to tour inside, but you do get to see the worlds largest wine vat. Worth the tour just don’t expect to see inside. Take the time to go into the city. Cute little shopping area.

This has to be your first option for an outing in Heidelberg. It is very accessible to visitors and situated atop a hill so the views are breathtaking. The amount of tourist activity is manageable compared to other castles in Germany.

This was definitely one of my favourite activities here in Heidelberg...visiting the Heidelberg Castle.I took my time and spent about 3hours roaming around.I would strongly suggest the audio tour,it's cheap and hdlps you to understand the history of the castle.The gardens are beautiful and there is a café to enjoy a drink or have lunch.The views of the city are amazing.A must see!
