View the river valley and the old town from this garden-like area outside the castle ruins. Still puzzled about this heading though, since I believe Dicker Turm means bulky tower. Maybe the reference is to the fact that the bulky tower can be viewed here...More

As others have mentioned this is the adjacent area and not the castle. Although it provides for some great pics of the castle. When we were there we saw multiple wedding pics being taken. Best part is that it is FREE!!!

We had a superb meal with wine appropriate to the food. The service was impeccable, just the right amount of time between courses. The staff are knowledgeable and helpful. Please note the unusual table ornaments - all made from cutlery.

The castle of Heidelberg is worth a visit. You will discover a part of the history of the Rhine valley and the historical links between France and Germany. The garden is very nice, so are the views. If you have time take the "bergbahn"
