Enjoy some fine wine and a Tour of the Famous Castle- with a private guide


Please join me in the atmospheric location of the Heidelberg Castle wine cellar where we will try some fine wines from the local region. Including some excellent local Reisling's and some surprisingly good German red wine.

Inspired by the presence of the largest wine barrel in the world, we will sample a collection of excellent German wines from the Pfalz, Baden and Rhein Hessen and some other of Germany's 16 wine growing areas.

After enjoying the wines we will take a tour of the Castle and Garden.

A Recent Review of this tour

I recently enjoyed a perfect day of wine tasting and Heidleberg Castle exploration with my guide Henry. The day started exactly on time as arranged. He shared some history about the area before we even got to the castle. His knowledge was engaging and vast. What a pleasure to hear all he knew about the people and the history. Wine tasting was fun and delightful! I never felt rushed and he was always happy to stop for pictures. Well done and I would definitely book again with both Henry and ToursByLocals!
