Nice location close to the castle. Average food considering the price and quality. The service has definitely room for improvement.

Visited Die Burgfreiheit biergarten on a very hot July (2017) day. Tables under trees and tents provided for some much needed shade. Food was good, cold Heidelberger Pils was better. Note: bring cash...they didn't accept debit/credit cards when we visited.

Located at Hidelberg castle (Schloss) entrance. The place is amazing, as you can see in the picture. Friendly staff and good food. I ordered schnitzel and it was delicious. Average price (€ 30 for two people).

A nice little coffee place at Heidelberg Schloss just outside the castle. Good service but strangely no wifi. Decent coffee but amazing apple strudel.

We ate for lunch in the grounds of Heidelburg castle. To be honest, I expected to pay premium prices, but the food was very reasonable ( about Euro 12-14 for a main plus salad) and surprisingly good. Service was friendly although we warned, they don't...More

The location, at the gate of the castle, is the only thing that was great. The meal we got was not impressive or memorable, just so so and somewhat overpriced. We could not eat inside the restaurant, only in the beer garden. I made a...More
