Living in Heilbronn

Situated between Stuttgart and the Heidelberg/Mannheim/Ludwigshafen conurbations, Heilbronn sits astride the River Neckar, an important trading tributary of the River Rhine. Although almost entirely rebuilt after World War Two some medieval buildings remain, including the Bollwerksturm, or Bulwark Tower, and the Käthchenhaus, or Cathy’s House, on which von Kleist based his play, “Das Käthchen von Heilbronn”. Entertainment within the city revolves around the concert and congress center, a floating theater and Theater Heilbronn, whilst the "Experimenta" science park is a popular attraction. Heilbronn's riverbank promenade provides walking, cycling and inline skating opportunities. The city has two shopping centers, the City Gallery and the Cloister, with street cafes and bars, and several restaurants offering international cuisines. Expats living in Heilbronn should find the mix of nationalities within the city, thanks to the university and a large Turkish population, friendly and welcoming. The InterNations community of expats offers those living in Heilbronn the opportunity to network via the online forums. Through our platform, you can make contact with others living in Heilbronn for mutual friendship and support. Expatriates and their partners are welcome to register with InterNations to enjoy a social scene with others of similar professional standing.

Moving to Heilbronn

The international airport in Stuttgart is nearest and has good rail connections to Heilbronn. S-Bahn, tram-trains and buses operate throughout the city, and there are excellent road connections to the German autobahn network. Moving to a new country can be demanding, especially if there are language and cultural differences to overcome. Specific advice may be needed from those who have experienced such a move, and by turning to the InterNations community you have seasoned expatriates willing to offer tips and advice relevant to life in Germany and even Heilbronn itself. For more general information on relocating as an expatriate, the InterNations own online publication, the "Expat Magazine" contains a wealth of information on a broad range of subjects to help expats through the process from start to finish. The trusted expat community of InterNations offers friendship to all new members moving to Heilbronn.

Working in Heilbronn

As the regional economic center of the Heilbronn-Franken region, the city supports a diverse range of industries. Viticulture, grape-growing, is the main economic crop of the region, with vast vineyards rising up from the river on both sides of the Heilbronn basin. The Heilbronn container terminal is a significant inland port, bringing goods from further upstream along the Rhine and Neckar rivers. Heilbronn's salt mines have been worked for centuries, but the city is now diversifying from its traditional engineering and machine tool industries to investment in high tech companies specializing in science and information technology in the "Wohggelegen" Future Park. Working in Heilbronn, an expat can hope to make contact with other similarly qualified expatriates in the area via the InterNations portal. Networking to establish business contacts and to locate open-minded expats for mutual company is central to the InterNations ethos and philosophy.

    On InterNations I did not only meet interesting people but I also found a flat near Bochum and settled in quickly. A great platform.
