The Heidelberg Experience: there is no better place to spend your time abroad! Set in the picturesque Neckar Valley, Heidelberg's beautiful historic centre offers a romantic small town atmosphere with a cosmopolitan appeal. Cherish a safe and serene urbanity with bustling restaurants, cafés, and shops only a step away from a placid stroll or leisurely bike ride along the Neckar's shoreline. Youthful vigour abounds in this town that is home to Germany's oldest university.
Enjoy easy access to the cultural and recreational offerings of south-western Germany. Munich can be reached by train in three hours. Berlin is a mere five-hour train ride.
Set in the heart of Europe, Heidelberg is three hours away from Paris via ICE (Intercity Express Train). A trip to Strasbourg and the Alsace takes less than an hour. Switzerland and the Alps are two hours to the south. Furthermore, the proximity to Frankfurt and Stuttgart airports provides ideal opportunities for weekend trips to other European metropolises such as London, Madrid, or Rome.
