Discover The Renowned Ruins of Heidelberg Palace Castle

Perched on the lush hillside of Königstuhl Mountain, high above the city, Heidelberg Castle has been an inspiration for poets, artist and travelers since the 13th century. A masterpiece of Renaissance architecture, the palace features elaborate plaster ceilings, decorative portals, famous gardens,and iconic red sandstone exteriors. Left in ruins by a 17th century war and two natural disasters, today the castle facade stands as a national monument and historic treasure.Take a guided tour to see the restored palace rooms, visit an apothecary museum,and enjoy splendid views of the Old Town and the Neckar Valley from outdoor observation terraces.

Once celebrated as the "eighth wonder of the world," the majestic Heidelberg Castle is the most popular castle ruins in all of Germany.
