Situated in the Neckar Valley, in the north-east of the Land of Baden-Württemberg, Heidelberg is considered to be one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Its castle, the residence of the Prince Electors during five centuries, attracts visitors from throughout the world and the biggest names of the « Sturm und Drang » movement, including Clemens and Bettina Brentano, Achim von Arnim and Goerres, have sung the praises of this romantic city. Only, it would be wrong to believe that the prestige of Heidelberg depends only on the Renaissance facades of its imposing ‘Schloss’ or the famous poems which it inspired. Heidelberg is also a university, technological and economic centre of the highest importance which has always managed to link teaching, science and industry. It forms the Rhine-Neckar triangle with Ludwigshafen and Mannheim. Its University, created in 1386, is reputed for being one of the best in the world. Philosophical and serious, Heidelberg is also a young and dynamic city which knows how to enjoy itself and relax. University evenings, concerts in the courtyards of the castle and the picturesque walks on the banks of the Neckar… Haben Sie eine schöne Zeit!
