Heidelberg Mountain Railway (Heidelberger Bergbahn)

The Heidelberger Bergbahn, or Heidelberg Mountain Railway, is a two section funicular railway. The first section runs from a lower station at Kornmakt in Heidelberg's Old City, via an intermediate station at Heidelberg Castle, to an upper station at Molkenkur. Here passengers may change to the second section, which runs to the Königstuhl, a nearby mountain with good views over the city and the River Neckar.

The upper and lower sections of the funicular have different histories and are sometimes referred to separately by the names Königstuhlbahn and Molkenkurbahn respectively. These two sections present quite different appearances, with the upper section using wooden bodied cars of historic appearance, whilst the lower section uses modern style cars. Similarly the upper stations at Molkenkur and Königstuhl are to the original design, whilst those further down the hill at Kornmakt and Heidelberg Castle present a more modern image.

The Heidelberger Bergbahn runs every 10 minutes throughout the day, while the connecting upper section runs every 20 minutes throughout the day. The services start and end at times that vary from summer to winter.
