Welcome to the Heidelberger Bergbahnen

++++   Funicular railway inspection from 5th March 2018   ++++  

The Heidelberg funicular railways rank amongst the most popular tourist attractions in the town. Every year more than one million passengers use the traditional funicular railways, enjoying the spectacular views of Heidelberg and the Neckar valley as they travel, and from each of the stations. You can even see far across the Rhine lowlands as far as the Palatinate wine route from the vantage point of the Königstuhl.

The lower railway, one of Germany's most modern funicular railways, starts at Kornmarkt in the old town and runs via the Castle (Schloss) station as far as Molkenkur. From there you can continue with one of the oldest electric funicular railways to the Königstuhl, the town's highest point at more than 550 metres.
