Heidelberg Castle Illumination

Bookable on the weekends of 1 June and 7 September 2024

The Heidelberg Castle lights cast a spell over thousands of people every year. Bengal lights bathe the world-famous ruins in a mysterious red glow and remind of the destruction in the Palatinate War of Succession. The origin of the subsequent glow of lights from the Old Bridge is of a romantic nature: In order to welcome his newly wedded wife Elisabeth Stuart appropriately, Elector Friedrich V had fireworks staged in 1613, thus establishing the 400-year-old tradition. Take part in this brilliant event and enjoy the fireworks from the first row after a 1.5-hour boat trip into the Neckar Valley when the anchor is thrown in the best position in front of the Old Bridge.

Procedure for the boat trip to the castle lighting:
Admission from 7 p.m., departure at 8 p.m., end around 11 p.m.
The seats on the ship are reserved for you.
