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
Lots of positive reviews so just two points to make:
1. The apothecary museum should not be missed. Positive.
2. Time Germany came into the modern age and accepted cards for everything. An 8€ minimum or else pay cash is just out of touch with...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
