TOP FIVE! Of the event locations in Heidelberg
One might think that Event is simply the English translation for Event. But this is not quite true, because there is a small but subtle difference. Depending on the topic and reason, the organizer wants to achieve a certain goal with the respective event. In order to show the difference to the event, a small specific detail is missing, namely emotions. If an event succeeds in arousing emotions in the guests, the guests will remember the event demonstrably better and longer. To achieve this, the event should be an experience, because by involving the visitors, they perceive the event positively.
So now we have clarified that with the event and the event, but what were the locations again?
In German the term “location” is usually used as a term for “Ort/ Örtlichkeit” and “Lokalität”. Since the word locality has been used synonymously for pubs, restaurants and bars, the term “location” has also become firmly established in the German language for discos, clubs, cafés and restaurants.
Since we would have clarified this now, we have created a TOP 5 of the event location Heidelberg for you, to give you a small reminder in the future.
No matter whether birthday or company celebrations, weddings, concerts or dance events. The factory is ready for everything and is just waiting for your visit. For the right atmosphere there are different decoration utensils, lighting systems and a modern design.
An absolute plus is that the factory is not only a great event location, but also offers numerous overnight accommodations. If the wine factory would not be for you, there would still be the Hotel Zum Ritter St. Georg, which is located in the main street in Heidelberg. There are parking garages in the immediate vicinity (P0 Woolworth 57, P1 Poststraße 528, P2 Bauhaus 200, etc.). Another advantage of the location is that it is easy to reach, as it is located directly at the Heidelberg Bismarkplatz, the centre of Heidelberg.
In addition, you can expect a large selection of furniture from different tables to monitors, seating plans for buffet information and photos. If you have decided to celebrate your event at Moods, there is an additional advantage (which you may not have at other locations): you can hire a caterer and event photographer with trusted partners of Moods, hire live bands or DJs and ask for exclusive decorations. If that’s not enough, Moods also offers you other special aspects such as :
No additional room rental
Celebrate without time frame
Free parking spaces
No volume limit
Celebrate from 60 people
Accommodation can also be arranged immediately, as the Günes Hotel Management in Rudolf-Diesel-Straße is only 500m away from the location. If this hotel is already overcrowded, there is still the possibility to go to a Hotel Garni, which is, however, one kilometer away from Moods.
The location is split into different areas, which together form a hall, foyer, club, backstage and outdoor area, as well as a restaurant. Their events of all kinds are carried out according to their motto “urban, flexible, creative”. Be it workshops, conferences, galas, product presentations (also automobile), symposia (scientific, theme-related conference), exhibitions, and much more.
Here are brief key data on the respective areas:
An absolute plus point are the vouchers that can be pre-ordered at the NEO, which can also be a great gift idea. Depending on the event the price varies between 25€-300€. For example, the NEO organizes a NEO Family Sunday for pP at Easter. 49€ (thereafter every Sunday from 12 noon). For this price, you can expect entertainment for children until 6pm, food and entertainment for adults. Children pay 1€ per year (max. 15€) for food and children’s entertainment. A three course menu will be served, which will be served in family style.
The Old Indoor Swimming Pool is not only a great event location that you can rent, but much more! The event location is in one building with other service providers. Like the Body Worlds Museum, which is located directly at the entrance, to the left is a gastronomy “urban kitchen”, an Alnatura organic supermarket, which is located to the right, and a café, which is right next door. Furthermore, the old indoor swimming pool directly above offers a cooking and barbecue course. The event location is an ideal place for in-house exhibitions, conferences and club nights. By the way, a light, sound, stage and presentation technology is available for you. An absolute eye-catcher is the fully animated light show as 3-D mapping (synchronized visuals, which should convey a special effect). No matter whether for business with customers and employees or for private use.
The event location allows you a choice of two rooms. The first room would be the so called “Frauenbad”. Depending on the seating, up to 230 people can fit into this room. In addition, the ambience has two terraces which are covered (50 people) and uncovered (100 people). There is also a separate conference room for up to 20-30 people. The second room would be the roof lounge, which seems perfect for summer days. This is also where the Private Cooking in the 1st Heidelberg Cooking and Grill School would take place, which you can book as an option.
By the way, overnight accommodations are not far away at all, actually on the other side of the house, on Bergheimerstraße is the Guesthouse Heidelberg.
The special thing about this location is that it has a historical background. In former days very famous people like Emperor Wilhelm I., Chancellor Otto von Bismarck, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and many more went in and out of this location. Today the palace is available for private or business events where in former times, the Empress Elisabeth of Austria, known as “Sissi”, celebrated balls. The location admits itself as an experienced wedding location and offers therefore also individually tailored wedding arrangements to make the celebration something very special.
An absolute highlight of the location is that the Palais also offers wedding ceremonies. In cooperation with a selected freelance speaker and the registry office you can have a very personal wedding ceremony.
In keeping with its motto “quality not quantity“, the location offers its own high-quality catering, using only fresh, high-quality, regional and seasonal ingredients and products. For every occasion they put together a suitable culinary supporting programme. You can also choose if you want to have a three or four course menu. Of course, the price also varies here depending on the choice of menu between 49€ and 65€ per person, including VAT, without drinks. Another advantage of this location is that the accommodation is not too far away. The next hotel is at the Kornmarkt and only 10 m away from the Palais.
My absolute favourites are the freight station/ hall 2 and the Moods. The Güterbahnhof because with its different rooms it can offer a wide range of celebrations, events or functions. Furthermore, I am convinced by the NEO Bar-Restaurant with all its high-quality dishes and products, such as dry-aged beef or various sushi creations. Also because the freight station does not give me an 0815 impression. If you like it a little bit unusual, you will surely like it here. The Moods is my second favourite because it offers a wonderful view of the famous Heidelberg mountain panorama, but is also central but remote enough to be able to celebrate without any problems, so that nobody feels disturbed. In addition, Moods manages a lot for you, from free weddings in the green, to confirmations in the winter garden.
All in all, I think that all five event locations are well equipped and with all their different features they make a wonderful celebration possible, which hopefully will remain a long lasting memory.
