I really like the castle here. There is an entrance fee to go inside to see the pharmacy museum and walk around but the gardens are free. The views are beautiful.

The best way to travel is by bus from Karlsplatz. The bus ride is approximately 15-20 minutes and is free. The bus leaves you at the stop near the castle from where there is a short walk down to the castle. The return bus is...More

This a beautiful castle that allows you to enjoy the beauty of Heidelberg from high up too. The castle itself is partially in ruins. Somehow this makes it all the more beautiful to walk around and take in. From all angles the castle is a...More

The pharmacy museum alone justifies the price of admission. The views over Heidelberg and the Neckar valley are very nice.

The best is the views you have. The castle by itself seems an abandoned factory even though it has a beauty and well-conserved walls.

It was a short walk up from the bottom about 10/25 mins and cost €8 euro. There are also tours that take you into parts of the castle that not everyone can go into but they cost more.

Guide on the place was wonderful. Enjoyed our tour. Loved the vistas you could see. This was perfect after looking at castles on the hills the day before as we sailed down the Rhine.

You can go up and park. There is a parking place, but its really small. Or you can also park on the road side, before entering the Castle.
