The boat has 3 other stops up the river from Heidelberg. The Neckar River winds through a beautiful valley with quaint towns Olinger the shore. Get out and enjoy each. The last stop has 4 castles but 2 are private homes.
We did the cruise from Heidelberg to Worms (Neckar & Rhine Rivers) - what a disappointment! Easily the most boring, mundane cruise I could imagine. The scenery is essentially featureless - primarily undeveloped riverfront or (even worse) channelized canal front with trees & shrubs. Maybe interesting for 10 minutes, but it goes on hour after hour. When you do reach... 更多
I recommend this beautifully scenic 3-hour "castle river tour." We got the family card (2 adults, 3 children) for 38 euros, which I thought a good price. Extra children were 8 euros. We went through 2 locks with a stop in Neckhargemund before a final stop in Neckarsteinach (4 castles) where we turned around. It was about 1 and a... 更多
Well it started out great- there was commentary for the first ten minutes about the history of buildings in Heidelberg, which we thought was great! We wanted to learn more about the area. After the first ten minutes, the information stopped. We found this very weird. It was supposed to be a "castle tour" and the castles weren't even pointed... 更多
We were told at the ticket counter to be waiting in line 30 mins before departure and if we miss it there is only one more boat. My friend asked could we get a refund and the girl said no the ticket is valid for a year. Mmmm ...not so friendly! Anyway we persevered. First the large boat that was... 更多
Nice way to see countryside and villages. Interesting couple of locks to go through and castles en route. We disembarked at Neckarsteinach but not a lot was open or as picturesque as we thought so hasty return to boat where we ate lunch en route back to Heidelberg. An hour and half each way. 30e for 2 quite good value.... 更多
We choose the 3 hour tour went thru 2 locks got off walked around town up to 2 very old castles. Great places to take picture, down the mtn only about 20 minutes and had a great lunch at the cafe right on the river. Then back on the boat and floated back to Heidleburg. We needed a bit of... 更多
We did the round trip to Neckarsteinach. If you're looking for a feature-heavy, spectacular scenery you might be disappointed. If you like locks, castles and verdant landscapes while sipping a chilled beer you're in for a treat. Prices are very reasonable, and there's a pleasant restaurant cafe at both the Heidelberg and Neckarsteinach stops.
We have taken the boat between Heidelberg - Neckarsteinach several times, and have never been disappointed. The tour is beautiful and calming, passing small towns, old castles and stunning landscape. Surprisingly the food is actually really good. The selection may not be the best, typical German, with sausages and schnitzel, but it will not disappoint you. Prices are fair and... 更多
