The Heidelberg Convention The Kongresshaus Stadthalle Heidelberg (Heidelberg Convention Center) is centrally located and can be reached easily. Thirteen function rooms provide 2500 square meters of floor space for conventions, congresses, and events for up to 1250 people. With its sumptuous, late 19th century architecture and flashes of art nouveau brilliance, the Kongresshaus forms a stunning backdrop for conventions, congresses, balls, banquets, receptions, and concerts. While the Großer Saal (Great Hall) with its broad sweeping gallery and a capacity for 1250 persons is the jewel in the crown, smaller rooms such as the Ballsaal (Ball Room) or the Kammermusiksaal (Chamber Music Hall) are also historical gems in their own right. The Kongresshaus is nowadays equipped with the latest audio, projection, lighting, and communication technology. An in-house catering team serves international specialties, fine regional cuisine and hearty snacks.
The Kongresshaus is a house with history. It was dedicated as a gathering and festival building for the city‘s residents on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the University Reform in 1903. Ideally situated within the Old Town, the Kongresshaus sits right on the banks of the River Neckar within the historic city of Heidelberg. Hotels, restaurants, and attractions such as the Old Bridge or the famous castle are just a few minutes away. No wonder that conventions in Heidelberg are considered “Congresses of short distances”. Directly in front of the entrance, the boats of the “Weisse Flotte” ("White Fleet") provide a really special extension area for very large gatherings. Romance meets Science – it is this mixture that makes Heidelberg such a unique venue for international and national conventions and congresses.
