How much does a train ticket from Mannheim to Heidelberg cost? and could you also give some details of the trains from Mannheim to Heidelberg (Name, Timings, ticket cost etc.)


by mccalpin

All this information can easily(?) be found on the German Railways website - . You need to practice using it so that you can learn your options, pricings, potential discounts, etc.



by christine.j

This is local transport and day passes are usually the cheapest option. I explained the passes on my Mannheim page/transportation.

DB timetable
From: Mannheim
To: Heidelberg

Mannheim and Heidelberg are both inside the same local public transport network, the VRN. A VRN ticket covers the S-Bahn, RegionalBahn (RB) and RegionalExpress (RE) trains between both cities. Plus all trams and buses in both cities.

VRN single ticket for zone Mannheim to zone Heidelberg is EUR 4,50.
VRN TICKET 24 (a 24 hours ticket) is EUR 8,00.
VRN TICKET 24 PLUS (a 24 hours mini group ticket for 2-5 persons) is EUR 12,50.

Please note that with these tickets you cannot use IC/EC or ICE trains.


by Sjalen

Sorry Bill but this is a local transport (it's maximum 20 minutes by S-train) and in fact you might have trouble buying your ticket from a DB machine should you want to (even if its staff will still gladly sell it) as it is considered too local. I tried it from Speyer some weeks ago...


by mccalpin

Hmmmn, I see that you are right...well, you can use to see the trains, the timings, the types of trains, but you can't see the prices or buy using the Internet...well, I guess that proves that the price can't be very much, if the trip is only 13 minutes or so ;-)


Travel Tips for Heidelberg

Street Browsing

If me and my friends have time to do nothing, we often just take a stroll through the streets in the Altstadt (old town). Great fun, and you always run into someone you know. Friendly atmosphere. No one is a stranger long in Heidelberg.

Heidelberg in the Movies

by JessH

By now you've probably realised that Heidelberg is one of the most beautiful old cities of Europe. So it is comes as no surprise that many filmmakers have chosen the city's red sand-stone facade & picturesque hills along the Neckar river as a filming location. I totally agree with their view: the city lends itself to being the perfect backdrop for a romantic story in the spring sun, or a shady criminal thriller in the small side streets, a fast-paced corporate drama in the modern commercial buildings, or a fun comedy for children - everything fits.
I remember many occasions on which I was walking through the city and saw filming for a movie or TV series taking place.

Mostly German productions are filmed in Heidelberg, but more and more international film makers are discovering our romantic city... and here is a list of some of the most memorable ones to date: > "The Student Prince in Old Heidelberg" (silent movie) was filmed here in 1927.

> The Cary Grant movie "I was a male war bride" was shot in Heidelberg in 1948.

> "The Big Chance", a 1957 movie about Heidelberg's thriving young jazz players.

> Italian / German black & white movie "Last Ring" in 1979.

> "Die Apothekerin" (the pharmacist) with famous German actress Katja Riemann, 1997.

> One of my favourite German scary movies; "Anatomie" with famous German actress Franka Potente, was filmed in Heidelberg in 2000. The movie shows awesome shots of the University's interior, as well as the "Hotel zum Ritter" and less known parts of the newer areas.

> "Kometen" (Comets). Germany's 2005 attempt of a smaller "Armageddon" version.

So, if you are visiting Heidelberg (especially in the spring & summer months) you might suddenly find a road or building fenced-off and bustling with film crews and actors.

Street Musicians

by cjg1

When we were on the Bridge there were some musicians playing some tunes. It made for a beautiful atmosphere: the river, the old bridge and my baby next to me. No wonder it inspired the kiss you see as my main pic of Heidelberg.

We tossed some coins into their violin case as a sign of appreciation for the music.

The German-American Connection...

by JessH

Did you know that Heidelberg is the headquarters of the US-Army in Germany?

Today, approx. 16,000 Americans live in Heidelberg. Around 4,000 of this number are employed by the US Army. It is estimated that 10% of Heidelberg's total population are American citizens! (I think now I understand why "pretzels" became so popular in the USA...? Haha!)

For many years, the city has always tried to promote and celebrate the "friendly neighbourhood relations" between Germans & Americans. Until about 2 years ago, Heidelberg celebrated the GERMAN-AMERICAN FRIENDSHIP FESTIVAL annually in Patrick Henry Village. PHV is an United States Army installation in the suburb of Kirchheim with a population of approx. 1,500. It opened in 1947 after World War II and was named after the politician Patrick Henry. This festival was always a surprisingly apolitical affair, usually consisting of live music, a huge fairground, heaps of German specialties, American grub and of course excessive amounts of beer.
Some of my fondest teenage-memories took place at this summer fiesta: being "hit-on" by more young American army lads than you can shake a terrorist at, getting a lovely tan, and who could forget first realizing what "hung-over" really means; as well as eating fabulous American ice cream until you felt so sick you wanted to die. Aaaahhh, the good old days!

Unfortunately, this festival has now been replaced with a smaller (budget friendlier?) version; probably much to the relief of annoyed residents of the Patrick Henry Village: this new "Volksfest" takes place in autumn on the "Messplatz" (near the Kirchheimer Weg in Heidelberg itself). This Festival is organized in collaboration with the American community, and in 2007 the festival will be held from the 19. - 28. of October... if you're in the area, I'm sure it's worth stopping by.

Go up the Konigstuhl

by duncanlbrown

Which is the big hill behind the Schloss - you can take the bus to the top, where there is a couple of cafes / bar / restaurants, then walk down through the woods. A very pleasant walk and lets you see an alternative view of the schloss. Just be careful and don't annoy the shadow giants.
