The town hall has been closed since August 2019 due to extensive modernization measures.
After the renovation, the renovated and rebuilt building will be more flexible than ever before: as a concert hall and as a place for a wide range of social events. With its romantic ambience, the venerable town hall is an ideal counterpart to the new, modern Heidelberg Congress Center and will therefore also be available for evening events at congresses in the future.
After the reopening of the city hall, you can look forward to excellent conditions for wonderful hours in the middle of Heidelberg's old town. Contact Heidelberg Congress today for more information.
Apart from Heidelberg Castle and Old Bridge, Heidelberg Stadthalle, located by the river Neckar, is the most distinctive landmark of the Old Town district. Built in a late historicist style, it is an internationally renowned location for successful congresses and festivals.
The building was designed by the Heidelberg architects Jakob Henkenhaf and Friedrich Ebert and was completed in 1903. The architectural style, following the tradition of the "German Renaissance", is also to be found at the Friedrich Building of the Heidelberg Castle. The south facade facing the "Untere Neckarstrasse" depicts portraits of university professors and famous artists, i.e. Karl Adolf von Vangerow, Johannes Caspar Bluntschli, Karl Josef Anton Mittermaier, Adolf Kussmann, Albert Mays, Karl Gottfried Nadler and the composers Richard Wagner, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Johann Sebastian Bach, Franz Liszt and Ludwig van Beethoven.
The cultural and academic exchange of knowledge has a long tradition in Heidelberg, which is continued in the Stadthalle. Versatile in its functions, it is used for seminars, conventions, concerts, gala dinners, balls, and other cultural and social events.
