Was a super interesting tour. Our guide Karsten Otte was very nice and gave us a lot of information about Heidelberg. We can recommend the tour to everyone. The mountain railway was so overcrowded that we walked from the castle to the old town. That wasn't a problem at all, and you'll be downstairs in ten minutes.

Good group size (16), experienced driver in chaotic road conditions during the bus ride, good tour guide with lots of anecdotes and statements about Heidelberg and the castle that I didn't know yet. The combo: bus ride, castle tour and departure by train was great!
