The "Heidelberg Spring“ classical music festival promises wonderful music, while the castle illuminations and fabulous firework display captivates thousands of people every year. Numerous theatres, jazz clubs and music venues offer culture for everyone.
Heidelberg Castle Festival
The world-famous castle ruins provide the perfect backdrop for the annual Castle Festival. With its remarkable Renaissance buildings, secluded corners and extensive gardens, the architecture and the atmosphere of Heidelberg Castle set the scene for fascinating theatrical productions. Squares and open spaces become stages, walls and corners become backdrops.
Heidelberg Autumn Fair
People of all ages flock to this major festival at the end of September, when the whole of the old quarter is packed with stands and stalls. At the very heart of the old quarter is the medieval Churpfalz Market with knights, travelling entertainers, fire-eaters and players. The wine village is hosted by various wine-growing estates and the Schriesheim vintners' cooperative and provides the perfect opportunity to sample regional wines and specialities.
Heidelberg Christmas Market
The Christmas pyramid on the market square is the new symbol of the Christmas market. In the shadow of a Christmas angel, it features prominent figures from Heidelberg's history who tell of Heidelberg's importance over various centuries. There is also a full programme of entertainment and other events including Advent concerts.
