Take the time to visit all 4 levels – about 3 hours should do it. The Car itself was "rustic" and charming. The Customer Experience professionals in the service station spoke english well and there was another rep at the second station helping visitors to...More

We decided to take the Funicular up to the castle, but instead of getting off for the castle we switched from the more modern funicular to the old style funicular car. The car is pulled up the mountain side via cables in the rails. You...More

Absolutely worth the trip. Make sure you buy a return ticket, otherwise you have to line up again. This was certainly a highlight of our trip to Heidelberg. Great experience for old and young. View from the top also spectacular.

This cable car runs constantly and gets you to the castle in no time, if it is busy it is no hardship waiting for the next one. On the journey back we had the car to ourselves.

The funicular is 12€ and it includes entrance to the castle. It stops in the castle and stops another time to change stations for those going to the top. It is worth going. The view from the top is beautiful. I’m traveling with my cocker...More

There are at times huge queues to use this funicular. First stop is for the castle and palace grounds. You can walk but I am not sure how steep it would be.
