We took the 3-hour tour until Neckarsteinach and enjoyed it. It was a quiet day at the end of October, so the boat was almost empty and we could sit, relax and enjoy the wonderful views.

I wouldn’t recommend this boat trip, and that was before we ran aground and everyone got kicked off at the next stop – Neckarsteinach. We did the 12:00 departure from Heidelberg “Castle Cruise on the Neckar” on a Saturday in September. Not sure if the...More

I wanted to take a short river excursion, so we bought tickets and rode one way. The most interesting features were going through the locks. There are about four castles between Heidelberg and Necharsteinach, so that was fun as well. Just pleasant to watch people...More

We took the boat from Heidelberg to Necharsteinach, stayed there for a time then took the boat back to Nechargemund and stopped there for a while. Explored both small towns, not an awful lot to see. The trip down and back was very scenic and...More

The one hour 'tour' of the Neckar is just a circle cruise between the bridges, with minimal commentary in German, none in English. Burn a few calories and save 8 EUR and walk it.

Take a cruise (departs from Stadthalle, eg 12.00 noon) up the Neckar River (through 2 locks) and get off at the second stop, Neckarsteinach (takes just over an hour). Then walk up the hill, past 2 castles (schlossen) one of which is lived in, to...More

Set off on a 3 hour river trip, no English translation of the commentary and no written description of the things we are passing. What a shame, this is a prime visitor activity and we have seen many Japanese and American visitors who are unlikely...More
