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.
Would have loved spending more time in the castle!

Toured Heidelberg, shopped at Käthe Wohlfahrt and bought beautiful Christmas treasures and had them shipped expertly from the store. Drank beer in the square and savored this charming town.

Our tour guide was a citizen of Heidelberg since birth & a college history professor (RET). Got info from him during the tour that other tour guides didn't put out to their groups. Very informative. Beautiful ruins. Was great having some free time after the guided tour to see around the city. Transit from the riverboat dock to the city & back was first rate. Read Less

We were fortunate to have arrived early enough to tour this remarkable castle before the crowds moved in. The ornate facades, statues and views of the city below were impressive.

a vertigo-inducing ride up to the castle ... no one would have bet the bus could navigate that route. The castle tour was extensive and somewhat physically taxing, but I was very glad I went. Our free time downtown was pleasant, the main shopping street had a wide variety of options and it was easy to get back to the meeting point for the bus back to the ship. Read Less

The tour of the castle grounds and city was very interesting, even though we did it in a mild rain. The best part was the free time we had after the tour to explore the city on our own and find a lovely Brewpub for lunch.
