“Worth the hike up the mountain!”
Reviewed 19 June 2013

This was the end point for our mountain hike (also checked out points of interest such as Philosopher's Walk & Thingstatte). It was really interested to see the ruins; the city of Heidelberg has put up plaques amongst the ruins to show what each room was once used for. If you enjoy history & architecture (as well as hiking & nature!), you will find this landmark worth the hike. Once we reached the monastery ruins, we spent about an hour wandering around, inspecting every room - generally getting a feel for what it may have been like to walk the rooms when the monastery was in existence.

“If you like ruins...”
Reviewed 28 October 2012

Ruins of an old monastery. Some signs help you figure out what the different rooms were. You'll be exploring all the sights up there. Wear good shoes as there is a lot of walking over unpaved ground. Some of it is a little rough.

Sometimes there is a restaurant open.

“Ruins to explore”
Reviewed 8 July 2011

This is one of three attractions up on the mountain, we visited after our monumental stairclimbing at the adjacent Thingstatte. Climb the tower for another impressive view of Heidelberg and the surrounding ruins.
