Lovely castle sitting over the city of Heidelberg. A sweet funicular railway takes you up to the castle.

The Heidelberg Castle is a great attraction; to actually get in the castle, you have to pay for the guided tour. I thought the guided tour was a little long and anti-climatic. Definitely walk around the ground and get a photo from the spot overlooking...More

My friend and I went to the castle, we took one of those trains that goes to the top of the mountain. The view from top was absolutely stunning. Moreover, we went to the castle and it was great, pretty much interesting.
