A vibrant pocket-sized city
Whether you're eating and drinking, shopping or enjoying the cultural scene and leisure facilities, you can't fail to pick up on the vibrancy of this compact city. The international music festival 'Heidelberg Spring' ('Heidelberger Frühling') caters for all classical and contemporary music tastes, while the international literary festival is a 'must' for all book-lovers, and the theatre in the Old Town offers the full range of music, drama and dance performances. The building itself reopened in 2012, following an extensive renovation and expansion made possible by the unprecedented commitment of private individuals across Germany.
