April 2 - 30, 2016
This is the greatest music festival of Baden-Wuerttemberg and plays in the first league of the international festivals of classical music: the "Heidelberger Fruehling" (Heidelberg Spring).
The "Spring" owes its reputation not only to the great interpreters who find their way year after year to this city on the Neckar - in 2014 including amongst others the French pianist Hélène Grimaud and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. It is the combination of ambitious commissioned works and own productions, an International Festival Academy and the concept of acting as an innovative think-tank for the future of the concert format.
The more than 130 events attract around 35,000 visitors every year. The 18th "Heidelberger Fruehling" beared the title "Parallel stories". Further information is available from www.heidelberger-fruehling.de
