"Guided tour (5): ceilings inside Friedrichsbau" Top 5 Page for this destination Castle - Schloss Tip by Trekki
Castle - Schloss, Heidelberg: 184 reviews and 337 photos
Once inside Friedrichsbau, the tour leads to the first floor. The ground floor is occupied by the castle’s chapel, which can be visited at the end of the tour. The hallway in the first floor is beautifully renovated with oak inlay doors in Renaissance style and even more beautiful lockers (see next review).
The ceiling in the first floor is of beautiful wooden waffle grid style (photo 4). The one in the second floor it is a vault stucco ceiling with several coat of arms of Palatinate (photos 1 and 2).
The third photo shows again a vault stucco ceiling, but this one is in one of the adjacent rooms in the second floor, the so-called Green Room.

My photos are from 2006 when photography was still allowed during the guided tour inside of the castle. This is no longer the case since approx. 2010. In September 2013 I asked castle administration what to do with my photos and they kindly granted permission that I keep them in my three reviews because I didn’t take photos of the paintings. These are loan collections hence private and fall under copyright of the owners.
Thank you, castle administration!
