Visited Heidelberg on new year's day and it was a memorable experience! The old town and the castle are amazing. Very picturesque and so much to see and do. Well worth visiting. But the highlight of my visit was the ride with the funicular to the top of the mountain. It was a cloudy day so we thought it would... More

There isn't much at the 3rd (top) station, except view of Heidelberg and a little museum and a viewing room underneath the museum which you can see how the 1907 cogwheel locomotive works. 2nd station there's a cafe, viewpoint and changing between the funicular and the train. 1st station is the castle.

Love gong to the top and you can see the entire city. The amusement park at the summet is very good for young children. My only complaint is that they charge you one euro to use the toilet if you are not a paying customer to the park even if the rest of your party ( 2 people have already... More

Take the trip to the top of the mountain by taking both the funicular rides. The view from up their is breath taking. Both the rides in themselves make a great joy ride.

There are two funiculars rising from the old town in Heidelberg. The first goes up to the castle and then to a second stop a little further up the mountain. That funicular is relatively modern. At the second stop, you can switch to what appears to be a much older (meaning classic/good/cool) funicular that goes to the top of the... More

I bought the combo ticket that allowed me to go all the way to the top of Konigstuhl. The train stops at the castle the transfer station and the Konigstuhl. I was there on a freezing, cloudy day and was sure that I would not be able to see anything from the top, but I went all the same. The... More

The cost was very reasonable, Easy way to get to the castle. You can buy your castle entry ticket and funicular ticket at the same time.

Great views await the traveler who ascends to the top of the second funicular, but before then stop awhile at the castle and enjoy a walk around the ruins and gardens. Be sure not to miss the 'Big Barrel' exhibit, well worth a visit. Admission to the castle is included in the Railway fare. The funicular itself is in two... More
