It was a very long queue just to get the ticket. The view up at the castle is beautiful although I should say quite limited. Make sure to come early to buy the ticket or maybe because it was summer when I was around. I just love an idea of taking ancient furnicular in old Heidelberg.

The Bergbahn is amazing and offers nice views of the city and its beautiful sceneries. Its ticket is also affordable. The staff are friendly. However, getting in and out of the Funicular is extremely hard with a kids' stroller! There are many steps and no accessibility to a lift or a ramp for a stroller, so there is no other... More

The funicular ride is divided into 3 parts. The 2 lower parts are included in one ticket, you have to pay extra for the 3rd part to the top. During the ride to the palace station you don't actually see much, so I recommend that you go up to the 2nd level as well to have a view of the... More

We purchased a ticket in the Castle to take us to the second station, but when we saw the Classic funicular that would deliver us up into the clouds, we just had to say yes! For a relatively small cost, you can sample a very old and simple, yet efficient method, of getting people to the top of the mountain.... More

Visited Heidelberg on new year's day and it was a memorable experience! The old town and the castle are amazing. Very picturesque and so much to see and do. Well worth visiting. But the highlight of my visit was the ride with the funicular to the top of the mountain. It was a cloudy day so we thought it would... More

There isn't much at the 3rd (top) station, except view of Heidelberg and a little museum and a viewing room underneath the museum which you can see how the 1907 cogwheel locomotive works. 2nd station there's a cafe, viewpoint and changing between the funicular and the train. 1st station is the castle.

Love gong to the top and you can see the entire city. The amusement park at the summet is very good for young children. My only complaint is that they charge you one euro to use the toilet if you are not a paying customer to the park even if the rest of your party ( 2 people have already... More

Take the trip to the top of the mountain by taking both the funicular rides. The view from up their is breath taking. Both the rides in themselves make a great joy ride.

There are two funiculars rising from the old town in Heidelberg. The first goes up to the castle and then to a second stop a little further up the mountain. That funicular is relatively modern. At the second stop, you can switch to what appears to be a much older (meaning classic/good/cool) funicular that goes to the top of the... More
