I can't believe a place like this can survive...first you get in and it is really really cold. Then you order...and it takes over 1 hour to get what I would call the worst food I've had in a very very long time. The Diet Coke I ordered was so stale it did not even show any bubbles but the... More

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.

Burgfreiheit gives you a nice break from the crowds at the castle. We ate in the beer garden so we had a nice view of the castle. The food is good, nothing too remarkable. The prices are average. The staff was friendly.

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 take credit cards

Lattes, Hot Chocolate & Apple Strudel were ordered. Mom also decided to add their special of White Asparagus &... 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 special point of eating here because I had lived in Heidelberg about 30 years ago,... More
