Well worth taking Funicular railway to get up to castle or all the way to top where there are great views of city. Very good cafe and coffee shop at top so it was really relaxing experience

Funicular railway up from the end of the Hauptstrasse to the top of the hills behind Heidelberg (about 1500 feet above the town). There are 2 initial stops, one at the castle, and one about half-way up the hill. (The funicular/castle combination tour includes those...More
