Spring 2020

Study abroad in Heidelberg, Germany Spring semester

JANUARY 2 – MAY 1, 2020

The spring semester is a great time to study in Heidelberg. Though temperatures might be cold when students arrive in January, by March the sun will be shining and students will be able to enjoy many outdoor recreation activities that Heidelberg and the surrounding areas have to offer.

At the beginning of the semester, for example, students may want to take a trip to one of the many ski regions nearby. As the temperatures slowly rise, Heidelberg’s great outdoors come back to life.

Also during the spring, Heidelberg hosts one of the biggest music festivals in Germany, the Heidelberger Frühling. Each year over the four days of the festival, nearly 30,000 visitors come to Heidelberg to enjoy one of the concerts or just to experience the lively atmosphere that the festival brings to the city.
