It was well worth the trip to the top. The view was amazing. Apart from a small cafe there is not a lot to do but just enjoy the view.

Worth the additional trip to the top of the mountain - just don't stop at the Castle. This is the second funicular and is definitely worth getting the additional vantage from the higher elevation.

The gradient of the funicular is impressive - especially as it is 125 years old! The best view with a coffee we had all holiday.

Since the castle is 80 metres directly above the city of Heidelberg this is the best way to go and visit the castle. Of course you get excellent views. It is no wonder it operates frequently and is so well patronized.
