From broadband expansion to open data

Heidelberg is outstanding – not least in the field of digitalization. The city continues to make steady progress towards becoming a Smart City. From broadband expansion and public WiFi to online public participation and open data, digitalized infrastructure is set to become as much a part of local authority essential services as electricity, gas and water. The objective is to use new technologies to sustainably improve the lives of all our citizens.
