Coming to Heidelberg for WU24 2019 as a participant or as a visitor, you will find it is a city that – in the words of one of Germany’s greatest writers J.W. Goethe – has “something ideal” about it. Asked to name their favourite destination in Germany, visitors from abroad consistently choose Heidelberg Castle and no fewer than 11.8 million people come to Heidelberg every year, drawn by the historical flair of this university city, with its stunning setting, wide range of activities, superb shopping, and restaurants to meet every taste. It is a dynamic city that is constantly developing – in terms of architecture, business and cultural activities, sport infrastructure and ideas.
Nothing is very far away in Heidelberg – and there are so many sights to discover and experience!
Heidelberg Castle and the extensive castle gardens are a magnet for visitors and the city’s top attraction. Walk up one of the many paths – or take the Philosophenweg (Philosopher’s Path) you have a breathtaking view of the city, the castle, the river and the surrounding hills. Enter the old town and you find yourself embarking on a journey back through history.
WU24 will have a total of 17 fields in the City of Heidelberg. WU24 will be hosted at two separate venues located five (5) kms apart.
