Sommertagszug – 26.03.2017

Heidelberg Historic – 13.07-15.07.2017
The cultivation of traditions at the highest stage! The region loves vintage cars and their drivers love the rally. The rally Heidelberg Historic occurs once every year in July and showcases exclusive old timers from pre-war time as well as the post-war period.

Schlossbeleuchtung – 03.06/08.07/02.09.2017
This is a truly unique event and one not to be missed.
For three nights only, Heidelberg Castle stands out against the night sky, bathed in a red light symbolising the three times that it was set on fire during the 17th Century. As soon as the red light fades away, the second part of the show begins – spectacular fireworks blasting from the Old Bridge. Our insider tip – the best views are to be had from the banks of the Neckar opposite the castle.

‘Lebendiger Neckar – 18.06.2017
Listen up, feast your eyes and dive in!
The day’s festivities take place along the banks of the Neckar from the Ernst Walz Bridge to the Old Bridge. Enjoy a canoe ride along the river, try your hand at street art in a graffiti workshop or soak up the live music from one of the stages. There really is something for everybody today.
