The city is constantly developing its universities and educational institutions. There are already about 10,000 students at the six universities. The Heilbronn Education Campus has hosted a satellite office for the renowned Technical University of Munich (Read More) since 2018. And the Nobel Prize winners of the future can now experience natural sciences and technology hands-on and conduct their own experiments in the futuristic “experimenta” science centre in the city centre.
After the devastating destruction left in the wake of the Second World War, Heilbronn was rebuilt as a modern city. An innovative rail network (S-Bahn) links the city and its surrounding areas, with trains even travelling as far as Karlsruhe, a hub for IT. Furthermore, the industrial area along the Neckar river has been redesigned for the National Garden Show Heilbronn 2019 (BUGA).
Modern office buildings play host to innovative companies and start-ups at the Zukunftspark Wohlgelegen technology park, which is situated directly by the river. In the city, the Innovationsfabrik (innovation factory), a former machine factory building, offers affordable office space for entrepreneurs looking to get their start-ups off the ground.
