Only come from about 1 p.m. Before is a super long line. We had tickets and were there at 11am. The queue of visitors WITH a ticket was super long (about 4x as long as those without a ticket) and ended up merging with the visitors who didn't have a ticket. We then went into the garden and by 1 p.m. the line had completely disappeared, so we got into the castle without queuing.

It was very informative and the guide very entertaining. Was a different kind of city tour. We thought it was great and therefore highly recommended.

Very good tour with many explanations, presented very authentically. It is definitely worth it

Very amusing evening tour through Heidelberg's beautiful old town.
