I took the 50-minute boat ride through Heidelberg. It was almost empty, only a few people. The boat makes many stops along the river so more people can get in but it is a nice ride. The price is quite low, only 9 euros, so...More

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
