What is the Heidel­berg Autumn?

It is an open air event. It is also called family autumn, because there are also many oppor­tu­nities locally to stroll with the child­ren, for example, in the streets of the old town.

Bes­i­des the street fes­ti­val, people can also visit the stores in the city on Sunday and buy things. Most of the stores are in the main street.

The fes­ti­val in the old town of Heidel­berg is well known in the Rhine-Neckar region.

In addi­tion to the children’s flea market in Berg­heim, there are also several flea mar­kets for arts and crafts and the goods market.

For the 50th anni­ver­s­ary there was also the first time fireworks.

The edi­tors of various news­pa­pers report on the festival.

Various bands play in dif­fe­rent places. These play from jazz, blues to elec­tro­nic music. For the 50th anni­ver­s­ary came for example Michelle J. Brad­shaw, Zap Gang or Huub Dutch Duo.

In addition to the children's flea market, there is also the artisan market. This is a good entertainment for the children.
Direc­tions
On those days, it is recom­men­ded to take public trans­port to the old town of Heidel­berg, as there may be traf­fic jams due to the many tou­rists. You can take S-Bahn line 26 directly to the Messeplatz.
Direc­tions
It is a spe­cial event to get to know the city of Heidel­berg better. On Sunday it is the open for sale Sunday. So there is a pos­si­bi­lity to buy things in the old town also on this day. The­re­fore, visi­tors are not depen­dent on the stalls.
