With its glorious natural setting, the harmonious ensemble consisting of castle, old town and river set in the midst of hills, Heidelberg is regarded as one of the most beautiful cities in Germany. Every year millions of tourists are drawn to experience Heidelberg’s mystique. Heidelberg was included in the preliminary German list for registration as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The city of the oldest university in Germany (established in 1386) looks back on over 800 years of history. Modern Heidelberg attracts people with its forward-looking science and research activities, is a quickly growing business location and the lively centre of the Rhine Neckar Triangle. Open-mindedness and internationality characterize the city on the Neckar that has cultivated town twinning relationships all over the world.

Fourteen city districts covering an area of 109 square kilometres with a total of some 140,000 inhabitants presently make up Heidelberg. City development in Heidelberg is governed by the “Heidelberg City Development Plan 2010” which was adopted by the Heidelberg City Council in spring 1997 and extended in summer 2006 (“Heidelberg City Development Plan 2015”) by a chapter giving priority to family-friendly measures thus taking acount of demographic changes. The plan defines the main targets of the city policy on its way into the 21st century in a “Local Agenda 21”. This was one of the main reasons that Heidelberg was chosen as a pilot city in the research project “Cities of the Future” by which the Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Housing wished to test future strategies for sustainable city development within the framework of the “Experimental Housing and Urban Development” (Experimenteller Wohnungs- und Städtebau – ExWoSt).
