"Funicular to Castle" Heidelberg Transportation Tip by sandysmith

Heidelberg Transportation: 67 reviews and 89 photos


To save a steep walk up to the castle take the Bergbahn (mountain railway) from the Kornmarkt parking garage, just off Kornmarkt.

If you really want to walk then go across Kornmarkt, into Burgweg, where the path splits - either follow the steps to the right or take the scenic (no step) route to the left. Follow the signs up to the castle. Be advised though that in the summer heat this can be quite a strenuous walk up hill.
