It isn’t just the famous Heidelberg Castle that casts its spell on guests from around the world: the entire city radiates a sublime air while being clearly at the pulse of its time. With a historical Old Town that is never fully discovered, many small alleys, each of which tells its own story, and a location that Goethe called “ideal“,
Heidelberg has its fixed position in the hearts of innumerable visitors.
Heidelberg, however, is at the same time a modern city of science and deemed a stronghold of Life Sciences – the University, the European Molecular Biology Laboratory, the German Cancer Research Centre and the Heidelberg Max-Planck-Institutes are some of the best research institutes in the world, making Heidelberg an internationally renowned science location.
The cultural repertoire of Heidelberg is just as colorful and diverse as its visitors from around the world are, offering dance, theatre, music and many events of the diverse culture scene that leave hardly anything to be desired. It’s not surprising that barely anyone who has ever been here will forget Heidelberg again.
