InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Heidelberg

Hello to all Americans in Heidelberg! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Heidelberg? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Heidelberg which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: its famous university is just one but certainly not the only reason why you might want to move to Heidelberg. The university town is a rather romantic city known for a rich history both in real life and in literature, its striking baroque old town, the romantic forest surroundings that include the famous ruins of Heidelberg Castle, and much more! With the network of bus, tram, suburban (S-Bahn) and regional train services, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in other towns of the Rhine-Neckar region, which are an easy commute away from Heidelberg’s center.

Although Heidelberg has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Heidelberg, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
