Development in Heidelberg
A City on the Move
Heidelberg is currently developing on a historically unprecedented scale. And it is pursuing ambitious goals. This is important, for ultimately it concerns the way people in Heidelberg will coexist in the future.
As a city, Heidelberg will continue to strive for social justice, environmental compatibility and economic success. A key part of its urban development is the systematic involvement of its citizens from an early stage. Alongside the major building and development projects relating to redevelopment sites and the Bahnstadt district, there are many other plans and projects of varying sizes.
Bahnstadt is one of the largest urban development projects in Germany. With 116 hectares, the new district offers space for housing, research and development.
After the withdrawal of the US Army, Heidelberg has the chance to utilise 180 hectares of space for new (digital) developments. Diverse neighborhoods will be created on the five sites available in the city.
What will the 'science city' of the twenty-first century look like? Heidelberg’s International Building Exhibition (IBA) points the way.
The master plan process for Im Neuenheimer Feld will enable the city, the state and the university jointly to develop future prospects for the research and medicine campus.
A "smart city" implements intelligent solutions for different areas of urban development by means of innovative technologies.
The Stadthalle is home to lots of different events in Heidelberg since 1903. It has seen better days and has to be renovated.
Conferences, congresses and conventions are regular events in Heidelberg as a city of science and knowledge. The new, state-of-the-art convention center will provide the perfect venue.
