If you are coming from the train main station, the travel information office is just right outside the station which is very convenient to pick-up your Heidelberg cards. The included funicular ticket is great specially if the day gets busy because you do not need to fall in line to purchase a ticket, you just go straight to the turnstile and swipe your ticket.

Diese Karte ist sehr zu empfehlen! Wir konnten Sie sehr häufig für die öffentlichen Verkehrsmittel nutzen, wie sich für die vielen Sehenswürdigkeiten! Die Überreichung der Karten am Abholort war unkompliziert, schnell und freundlich. Auch der Stadtplan und das Schlossticket waren hochwillkommen! Jederzeit würden wir wieder diese Karte besorgen, wenn wir nach Heidelberg kommen

In der Card ist zwar die Bergbahn mit drin,aber nur die Strecke mit der neuen Bahn.war irgendwie nicht so eindeutig und auch am Ende ein bisschen schade.Denn wenn man hoch fährt, möchte man auch bis ganz nach oben.Sonst aber ist die Card schon super.
