Whether you come to Heidelberg on business or as a visitor, you will find it is a city that – in the words of J. W. Goethe, one of Germany’s greatest writers – has “something ideal” about it. 

Asked to name their favorite destination in Germany, visitors from abroad consistently choose Heidelberg Castle. And no fewer than 11.8 million people come to Heidelberg every year, drawn by the historical flair of this university city, with its stunning setting, wide range of activities, superb shopping, and restaurants to meet every taste.

It is a dynamic city that is constantly developing – in terms of architecture, business activities and ideas.
