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.

Good tour of the castle. Great view of Heidelberg from above. The guide also took us on a walking tour of the city. Had some free time to shop and take photos.

First our guide walked us through the streets of Heidelberg giving us information on the history of the city. We then were bussed up to the Castle where we continued with the history lesson. She was very knowledgeable - but a bit stiff.

Enjoyed the tour and we spent the entire day in Heidelberg. We enjoyed a traditional lunch at a local restaurant, The White Swan, and strolled the town. Incredible food, window displays, and friendly people.

An awesome presentation of the castle and its history.

An awesome presentation of the castle and its history. Seeing the huge wine barrels, the worlds largest, was interesting. I would like to know more as to why the government is only preserving the castle rather than restoring it.
