A Glimpse of History : Simply Wunderbar Dec 23, 2012
Located amidst a town reflecting medieval architecture the Heidelberg Castle rises above the city, letting out a true aura of a Magnificent Piece of craftsmanship from the yesteryear s , Having survived the world war II , this is a true refection of intact German History. The breathtaking view from the top is worth the steep climb which for a vivid dreamer is enough to imagine that one is not entering a run down castle but history itself. If you are traveling across the area Frankfurt, Stuttgart etc.take time off to enter this vibrant city, and walk your way up this world famous castle. If you are driving take care as parking is the biggest hassle. Public transport is always recommended and the evening is the best time to stroll up. Enjoy a drink at one of the many restaurants decorating this old city. Take time to sit, and breathe in a bit of real German History. Its Simply WUNDERBAR!!!

A Breathtaking Medieval Castle May 06, 2008
This is a true historic monument. A magnificent step back in time and an awesome example of the painstaking attention to detail that architects and builders of this era put into their work. Much of the more detailed statue adourned buildings were built during the renaissance. The face of the building is liberally decorated with statues and carvings of soldiers at each floor. Inside you can take a guided tour and a look into the lives of those from the 13th to the 18th century including a wooden wine keg standing approximately 15 feet in diameter and 15 feet deep.

Wonderful Jun 07, 2007
The castle is the symbol of the wonderful city of Heidelberg and one of the most beautiful landmarks in all Germany. It is partially destroyed from the many wars, but is still one of the most important Renaissance buildings in Europe. A visit to this castle is really worth. Especially in springtime where we can enjoy a nice walk in the beautiful gardens outside the castle. Inside the castle is the German Pharmacy Museum (nothing particular for me) and The World’s Biggest Wine Barrel (Das Große Fass). The “Große Fass” is a real “Must-See”.

A great place to admire the castle and the whole city of Heidelberg is the "Philosophenweg" (The Street of the Philosophers).
