TUM Campus Heilbronn - Living

Life in Heilbronn

Where Management meets Technology

The charming combination of tradition and modernity makes Heilbronn an attractive place to live and study. 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. In recent years, a lively restaurant and bar scene has emerged along the Neckar River just a few minutes’ walk from the Bildungscampus  in recent years.

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.

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.

In cooperation with the Heilbronn University of Applied Sciences we offer a wide variety of different sport activities you can join (as long as participants places are available), please check online

Students under 27 years can buy a ticket to a reduced price at Theater Heilbronn presenting their valid student ID card at the cash desk in the Theater. Groups of 10 or more receive a group discount.

Further advice

If you have not found an apartment, you can look for a temporary solution, a hostel, on the following address:
Jugendherberge Heilbronn, Paula-Fuchs-Allee 3,
74076 Heilbronn, Phone 071312/172961.

If you have an offer for a private accommodation, you should give the proprietor with the following information: your name, age, admission to study on the HHN, when will you move in, how long do you plan to rent the apartment and if you move in alone. About the rental costs: in a hall of residence or a private dorm, you pay an all -inclusive price, but if you rent a private apartment, besides the rental contract, you have to conclude some other contracts too, e.g. for electricity, internet, waste collection. Therefore, you have to go to the respective providers, with your rental contract and passport and sign a contract.
