Study abroad at UIW-Heidelberg in Germany next Fall
During the Fall semester, you will have the opportunity to explore the city of Heidelberg’s unique international culture. You can enjoy the end of the summer in Germany by going for a stroll along the Neckar River, hiking up the Philosophen Weg for a great view of the city or simply relaxing outside in the courtyard in the afternoon or evening.
Since Heidelberg is close to Germany’s main wine region, students may consider visiting one of the many wine festivals that take place in the surrounding villages throughout the autumn season.

Study abroad at UIW-Heidelberg, Germany next Spring
The Spring semester is a great time to study at UIW-Heidelberg. Though temperatures might be cold when students arrive in January, by March the sun is shining and students will be able to enjoy many outdoor recreation activities that the city of Heidelberg and 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.
