A great location above the town and close to the funicular, when we arrived we commented on the wonderful quiet location ... Unfortunately two out of the three nights we stayed they hosted late night parties. Loud banging music till 0130 hrs.! They seem to make their money from conferences and functions, so you'd expect evening entertainments, but till 0130... More

We arrived at the Molkenkur Hotel for the Heidelberg Castle illumination around 12pm. Our room wasn't ready yet, but they recommended we visit Heidelberg Castle. We took the funicular down to the castle (hotel is just steps away from the 3rd shop so the location is great). We got back at 4pm and checked into our room. It was very... More

The hotel is on a steep slope of the Königstuhl and so has amazing views over Heidelberg that never disappointed. The hotel is next to the funicular railway down to Heidelberg town centre, which is a great way to travel down to the town centre. You also get a discount on the funicular railway for being a Hotel guest which... More

Nestled on the mountain above Heidelberg this beautiful hotel is very comfortable, modernly outfitted and elegant. The view from room 118 is spectacular. Wifi is available only in the lobby but parking is free. The funicular to the castle and city is adjacent to the hotel making the trip into the old city easy and without parking hassles.

Every year we go to Heidelberg and each time we stay at a different hotel. This time it was the Molkenkur as we were attending a ball there. The location of the hotel is just wonderful. High up, in the forested area above the Castle, the view one has is fantastic. It is preferable if one has a car as... More

We spent one night in a small but modern, up-to-date, very clean and quiet room. There is no air conditioning, but it is rarely needed there. However, we were visiting during an exceptionally hot day. A small desk fan was provided. The Hotel is a 150year old building, on a mountain side above the Heidelberg castle. It is easily accessible... More

The Molkenkur hotel was a great find! It is definitely a hidden gem! You do have to drive up the twisty hillside to get there, but the view is superb!! Breakfast was definitely worth it: eggs, waffles, meats and cheeses, pastries and yogurt all with that breathtaking view!! It's not in the old town area, however, the funicular is right... More

A beautiful view looking over Heidelberg. Quite the narrow winding road to get there so we used the funicular to go back into town. The front desk was very helpful and informative as how to get tickets, times etc for the funicular. Our room was very nice.

The funicular railway closes at 17.00 in the autumn/winter season so it's a long, steep walk back up the hill in the dark after an evening in Heidelberg - either that or a taxi for around €10. Decided to eat in the hotel restaurant one evening to save the trek into town. Meal was average, but quite expensive, so not... More
