Exploring Europe


You will find yourself working hard on your courses at the Universität Heidelberg, but that doesn't mean you won't have time for extensive travel. You can use some of your weekends, holidays, and the long break between semesters to explore Europe.

The central location of Heidelberg in the heart of Europe with excellent train connections make it an ideal 'home base' for travel. In only a few hours, you can reach most major European cities (refer to the map above) by train.

Heidelberg is also conveniently located near Frankfurt International Airport, the busiest airport in Germany, and Frankfurt-Hahn Airport, a major hub for many budget airlines. Through the many airlines and train routes, Heidelberg can be your starting point to go anywhere you choose in Europe.
