Heidelberg Heidelberg Castle Excursion Reviews

The ruins of Heidelberg Castle are some of the most significant in this region of Europe, and as a symbol of German Romanticism, they are well worth a shore excursion, especially since the interiors can only be viewed on guided tours.

Castle was interesting.

Castle was interesting. Also plenty time to wander round on our own before getting bus back. Tour guide was ok but a bit irritating!

Loved this castle from the outside, although you don't see much inside except a wine cellar.

Loved this castle from the outside, although you don't see much inside except a wine cellar. The town below was wonderful. Lots of activity as it is a college town with many pubs and shops.

The guide was disappointing, as he seemed more interested in telling jokes than showing us anything significant. I wish we had a different guide. We will return to Heidelberg and do it again with a better guide.
