The card is very convenient for using local transportation. A visit to the castle, including the use of the cable car, is helpful, but there are additional costs for other options, such as an audio guide and a tour of certain rooms. The lanyard is a nice addition, but actually superfluous.

I noticed that almost nobody buys a ticket on the buses. Of course, this speeds up the process (getting started - continuing). I haven't seen a controller in the four days of use either. It's great that you trust your passengers so much that everyone gets a ticket from the machine

Great thing!!

Especially the possibility of being able to travel by bus and train without having to worry about a ticket. The trip to the castle was of course also great. The castle with all the trimmings, of course. All of Heidelberg is worth a (or more) trip (s). We will be back.
