Both words are verbs. 理解 is usually used with abstract concepts, rational knowledge; 了解 is usually used with something that is perceived directly through the senses.
In addition, 了解 can mean "study, inquire, try to find out; 理解 does not have this meaning.
I also heard that 理解 usually implies a deeper comprehension
