Heidelberg - City of Romanticism and Sciences

Heidelberg, once the capital of the Palatinate

and spiritual centre of Calvinism, lies in the lovely

Neckar valley and is distinguished by its particularly

mild climate.

Over the years, Heidelberg’s beauty has drawn a number of

poets, painters and scientists. In the early 19th century, the city

on the Neckar became the most important centre of German

Late Romanticism. Inextricably linked with this epoch are the

poets Arnim, Brentano, Goethe and Eichendorff.

The Ruprecht-Karls University Heidelberg is the oldest

university in Germany. In the QS World University Rankings

2011/2012 the University of Heidelberg was rated the best German

university. In June 2012 the university’s elite status was endorsed

through the Excellence Initiative of Federal and Regional

State Governments.

Many monuments bear witness to the Neckar city’s diverse

history. Sitting approximately 70 metres above the river Neckar,

the city’s landmark, the elector’s castle, rises from the slope of

Königstuhl, on its very own mountain. Its ruins are among one

of the most impressive sights to behold on any tour of Germany.

Visitors climbing up to the castle first pass through the gate into

the famous “Hortus Palatinus” garden, created at the beginning

of the 17th century. From the castle garden, there is a wonderful

view of Heidelberg, including the Philosopher’s Walk, which

lies on the opposite bank of the Neckar. Fascinating buildings

that date back to a variety of epochs surround the inner courtyard.

Situated in the Royal Wine Cellar is the world’s largest

barrel, which was once filled with wine. It rarely failed to impress

- except in the case of Perkeo, the barrel’s gnome-like guard.

Once, when asked if he could drink the barrel dry, his answer

was a nonchalant “Perché no” - why not? - which is

how he came to earn his name.

A walk round the Old Town reveals outstanding

ornamental facades and portals. The heart of the

Old Town is the market place, with the church of

the Holy Ghost and the grand renaissance house

“Zum Ritter”. Leading away from the church of

the Holy Ghost are many old alleyways lined with

pubs and restaurants. Spanning the Neckar

is the Old Bridge, one of the most beautiful

stone bridges in Germany. The wooded hills around Heidelberg

cloak the city in a handsome green. The surrounding area,

which includes the Neckar valley castles, the German wine

route, ancient cultivated landscape along the Upper Rhine and

the Odenwald mountains, offers a wealth of experiences waiting

to be enjoyed. Proximity to Frankfurt and Stuttgart airports - just

80 and 130 km away respectively - means Heidelberg is easily

accessible to its guests from all over the world.

The name Heidelberg also stands for a modern and worldclass

location for science and business. Thus, the traditionsteeped

university, the Academy of Sciences, the German

Cancer Research Centre (DKFZ), five Max Planck institutes, the

European Laboratory for Molecular Biology (EMBL), the Print

Media Academy of Heidelberger Druckmaschinen, the SAS

Institute and several research centres belonging to international

companies are all located in Heidelberg. Such a concentration

of the sciences is unparalleled in Germany and forms the basis

for a dynamic, science-orientated economy that elevates Heidelberg

- despite a population of just 145,000 - to its position as

one of Germany’s leading economic centres.

Heidelberg is also one of Germany’s leading cultural centres, as

demonstrated by the wealth of museums and theatres. Together

with the neighbouring cities in the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan

area (Mannheim, Ludwigshafen, Speyer, Schwetzingen, Worms,

to name the most important), Heidelberg offers a large variety of

cultural events of national significance:

• Heidelberg Theatre Festival

• Heidelberg Literature Festival

• Heidelberg Spring Festival

• Heidelberg “Stückemarkt” Theatre and Drama Festival

• Festival of German Film

• Mannheim Summer Mozart Festival

• Heidelberg Castle Festival

• Schwetzingen Castle Festival

• Niebelungen Festival

F+U Academy of Languages

International Language School

The F+U language school is situated at the historical

centre of the university city, and just a few metres

from the Neckar.

The school building offers a fantastic view of the Old Town and

the castle and into the Neckar valley.

Today, the F+U Academy of Languages is one of the largest

language schools in Germany. Every year, approximately 6,500

learners from approximately 120 countries participate in our

language courses in Heidelberg. Thanks to its internationality,

the school is a unique meeting point for other languages and

cultures.

With 45 multimedia-equipped classrooms (up to 70 in summer),

3 Internet rooms with 50 PCs, free Internet access

and WLAN, and a central location in Heidelberg, the

Academy of Languages offers everything to ensure

language learning is an exceptional experience.

Several halls of residence with 280 rooms, apartments, a

school-owned hotel and several host families offer year-round

accommodation to learners arriving from all over the world.

Specialising in German as a Foreign Language, the F+U Academy

of Languages is one of the world leaders in the provision

of German courses, whether in the form of intensive lessons

in the mornings and afternoons, or extra-occupational evening

courses.

Of particular significance is the Vocational College for Foreign

Languages, established in 2004, which offers the opportunity

to study full time towards the following state recognised qualifications:

FremdsprachenkorrespondentIn (Foreign Language

Correspondence Clerk), EuropasekretärIn (European Secretary),

WelthandelskorrespondentIn (International Trade Correspondence

Clerk) and Translator. F+U is the only education provider in

the country to offer state recognised vocational language training

for Japanese. State recognition has also been awarded for Chinese,

English, French, Russian and Spanish.

The F+U Academy of Languages offers a variety of

internship programmes, including “Eurodyssée”

and “Leonardo da Vinci”. These

internship programmes give young people

from approximately 40 European regions

the chance to participate in a language

course abroad in either another European

country or in Heidelberg, followed by a commercial internship.

To complete its range of courses, the Academy of Languages

also organises language tours.

As an international test centre, the Academy of Languages

Description of programme:

Language course: Monday to Friday from 9:00 to 12:15, 20 teaching hours at 45 minutes.

The language lessons do not focus on teaching grammar; instead, the programme aims to create age-appropriate

lessons in which learners are familiarised with the German language and culture. As such, we recommend

participation in the additional modules.

• Shared lunch in the school: Monday - Friday; 12:30-13:30.

• Leisure activities: Monday - Saturday; 13:30-17:00.

Selection: Boat trip on the Neckar, orientation tour of Heidelberg, visits to the zoo, Fairytale Paradise on Königstuhl,

Heidelberg castle, sporting activities and picnic on the banks of the Neckar, mini golf, group cookery,

swimming in Heidelberg’s open air pool, walking on the Heiligenberg, visit to Thingstätte and much more.

Admission tickets for museums, swimming pool, Neckar boat trip, etc. are included, but not the cost of public

transport tickets (weekly ticket: ca. € 20, monthly ticket: ca. € 60).

• Host families (without accompaniment by an adult, from 12 years): Our young learners stay with a carefully

selected host family: The family will provide half board (breakfast and evening meal) from Monday to Friday, and

full board at weekends.

Special Modules: Riding lesson: € 45/45 mins; Piano practice at the school’s own piano: € 10/45 mins; from 50 TH: € 8.

Á la Carte Courses (Sport, Music and more)

Parallel to our intensive courses, we organise various special courses in cooperation with local associations, operators and

music schools.

Administration fee: 1 activity: € 125; 2 activities: € 200; each additional activity: € 65.

Selection: Football, handball, table tennis, tennis, basketball, field hockey, ice hockey, rugby and other sports, music lessons,

floristry.

Please note that the practice sessions are invoiced separately. The fee is dependent on the number of hours booked and,

moreover, on the type of activity. For sports lessons, it is often the case that only a small fee is payable to the sports club.

Practice hours at school’s own piano: € 10/45 mins; from 50 hours: € 8; Mon-Fri: 15:00-21:00; Sat + Sun: 10:00-21:00.

Language Course with Internship

Administration fee: € 250 (short internships, 2 to 4 weeks: € 125)

Applications for the internship should be received at least 12 weeks before the preferred starting date. The short

internships are usually offered within an F+U school.

Requirements: An intensive course of at least two weeks and intermediate language skills (B1; for short internships

at F+U: A1). Applicants from third countries must apply for a Working Holiday visa (only available to candidates

from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong and the USA: J1 visa).

“Eurodyssée” and “Leonardo da Vinci”: Funded language course and internship

Since 2004, the federal state of Baden-Württemberg’s Ministry of Trade has authorised the F+U Academy of

Languages to offer the “Eurodyssée” programme, which consists of a four-week language course and subsequent

three-month internship. Every year, the Academy also organises internships through the EU-funded “Leonardo da

Vinci” programme. Both programmes are offered in Heidelberg as well as abroad in other European countries.
