Restoration of the Baroque garden

An open air teaching and learning space was created in the former monastery garden of the Heidelberg Jesuit College.

The former monastery garden of the Heidelberg Jesuit College bordered by the English Studies Department and the Romance Languages Department provides optimal conditions for varied use by students, teaching staff and researchers. Thanks to the restructuring of the Baroque garden, which originated in the 18th century, a communicative space has been created, allowing students to study in a quiet environment in the heart of Heidelberg’s old town.

WHICH RESTORATION MEASURES HAVE BEEN CARRIED OUT?

  • Lawns remediated | New hedges
  • Pathways and bike racks replaced
  • Sandstone wall and fountain restored, steps and stonework repaired

Our special thanks goes to our Honorary Senator, Prof. Dr Dietrich Götze, who helped realise this project.
