Positioned in the heart of Heilbronn, the campus contains educational institutions, a cafeteria, an auditorium and a library. Thanks to its fully up-to-date facilities and light and airy design, the Bildungscampus provides the perfect balance for your academic pursuits.

Discover the city

In 1801, Heinrich von Kleist put Heilbronn firmly on the literary map with his play Das Käthchen von Heilbronn. By the town hall, with its astronomical clock, across from the Gothic St. Kilian’s Church, the city exudes the charm of bygone days. These landmarks are two of the few historical buildings that withstood the devastating air raid of December 4, 1944.

The modern side of the “City on the Neckar” can be found in the shopping mile, with its numerous stores and boutiques, that extends away from the historic center. The city’s museums and the Heilbronn Theater offer great variety for those interested in culture and learning. At the hands-on museum Experimenta, Germany’s largest science center, adults and children can explore fascinating natural phenomena.

In recent years a lively restaurant and bar scene has emerged along the Neckar River, just a few minutes’ walk from the Bildungscampus. Indeed, the city is shaped by its river and the vineyards that surround it. Around 120 family businesses in and near Heilbronn produce the famous Wuerttemberger wine, predominantly from Trollinger and Lemberger grapes. Enjoying a Viertele or 0.25 liter glass of wine at a Besen – a traditional seasonal wine bar run by a winegrower – is an essential part of any visit to Heilbronn. To find out which Besen are currently open, simply consult the handy Besenkalendar.
