Also, I've written a short trip report, starting with the first two days of our trip which were spent in Heidelberg:

6-7 SEPTEMBER: HOUSTON TO FRANKFURT TO HEIDELBERG
Got to the airport in plenty of time for our flights to DFW and Frankfurt, which were uneventful. Landed on time, retrieved our luggage and made our way from T2 to T1 using the Sky Train. Found the bus stop for our shuttle to Heidelberg (thanks to Fodorites PitWhitehall and Mainhattengirl!) but we were too early for our 10 AM reservation and the 9 AM shuttle was full so we just had to wait. The driver was very courteous and spoke good English. I had purchased our shuttle tickets online before we left the US so I only needed to give him the voucher I printed from the website. Great, no problem! It was about a one hour ride to Heidelberg so I just closed my eyes and enjoyed the ride.

The Crown Plaza Heidelberg Hotel is very nice (Room #126). There are lots of shops and restaurants nearby and it is very convenient for the shuttle which departs right at the hotel. We had a late lunch/early dinner of pizza at the DaMario Ristorante before walking down the Haupstrasse to the Market Square and Rathaus and then over to the Alte Brucke. We were really tired at this point and decided to call it a day.

8 SEPTEMBER: HEIDELBERG
Wearily, we got up around 7 AM and had a good breakfast. Waited at the hotel until I could check us in online for our Lufthansa flight to Warsaw at the hotel Business Center. Also checked email.

After stopping for a lunch of gulasch soup, we took the funicular up to the Castle (E5 each). We didn’t go inside the Castle but walked around the grounds for a bit before returning to the hotel. Picked up a couple of sandwiches and ate dinner at the hotel. We are still jet lagged and have to get up early tomorrow morning to catch the 8 AM shuttle back to Frankfurt Airport for our flight to Warsaw at 11:35 AM.
