Heidelberg is a city of science and a strong business location. Research institutions and national and international companies regularly hold conferences and other meetings here. However, the well-known Heidelberg “Stadthalle” cannot accommodate all those who wish to use these facilities for conferences or meetings. With this in mind, the new inner-city “Bahnstadt” suburb on the site of the old Heidelberg railway marshalling yards will offer ideal design and development options and is very well connected to public transport services.
A new building will be built here which will emphasise Heidelberg’s function as a socially responsible property developer. As a tangible result of this claim, the city aims to achieve DGNB certification in Gold which will be accompanied by a planning programme that is intended to be unique.
During a six month planning stage, a team of experts from the private sector, the university, event companies, technology companies and catering companies developed a planning programme with the added support of citizens, which managing director Matthias Schultze from the German Convention Büro called a unique process.
In keeping with the motto “Modern conferences and romantic celebrations!”, the interplay between the modern conference centre and the wonderful “Stadthalle” in the heart of Heidelberg will be a unique selling point for attracting numerous events to this city on the Neckar.
