17 reviews of Heidelberg Castle

Heidelberg Castle

Heidelberg Castle is built on Heidelberg, on top of a medieval fortress. For five centuries Heidelberg was the residence of the Electors of the Palatinate Wittelsbach and it was family owned. Between the thirteenth and seventeenth centuries the castle was not only built, but it was also expanded, which, in the 16th century, made it one of the most beautiful Renaissance homes in Germany. After the Thirty Years War and the War of 1689 against France, the castle was practically reduced to rubble, losing all of its glory in the process. Today, the ruins are the symbol of German Romantic Era. A visit to the castle is certainly an impressive must-see.

Heidelberg's Castle

Excellent

This amazing castle is located in the German town of Heidelberg (Baden-Württemberg). The entrance fee is cheap (with a student discount), and there are stunning views of the southern German greenery. The interior, although you can't see 100% of it, includes age-old rooms and hallways and a huge barrel of beer! This is definitely a recommended city.

An age-old Pharmacy

Excellent

Inside the fort there is a pharmacy that must have been there for centuries. It's worth visiting, with its jars of different components. There are precision scales and individual compounds drawers waiting to be taken. Highly recommended.
