This card is highly recommended! We were able to use it very often for public transport, as is appropriate for the many sights! The handing over of the cards at the pick-up point was uncomplicated, fast and friendly. The city map and the castle ticket were also very welcome! We would always get this card again if we came to Heidelberg

Traveling by public transport was great. Everything went without problems. With the castle ticket with mountain railway, it would be nice if you could book the rest of the way up to the Königsstuhl as an extra. Unfortunately, this did not work and we would have had to buy a completely new ticket. nonsense.

The card is very convenient for using local transportation. A visit to the castle, including the use of the cable car, is helpful, but there are additional costs for other options, such as an audio guide and a tour of certain rooms. The lanyard is a nice addition, but actually superfluous.
