Heidelberg is one of Germany’s most beautiful cities. The harmonious ensemble formed by the Castle, the Old Town and the Neckar river surrounded by wooded hills was a source of inspiration for poets and painters of the Romantic period and still never fails to fascinate millions of visitors from all over the world. There are lots of sights to discover here.
The home of Germany’s oldest university (established in 1386) looks back on 800 years of history. Its scientists, many of whom are Nobel prize winners, have turned Heidelberg into a synonym for first-class research.
Modern Heidelberg is notable for pioneering science and research. At the same time, it is a thriving business location and the vibrant heart of the Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan region. Cosmopolitanism and a truly international spirit are key features of this city, which maintains intensive town-twinning relationships all over the world.
