Semester Events Program Homestay Programme

The Heidelberg University International Relations Office wants to give international students the opportunity to find out more about German Christmas and New Year's traditions. International students will be able to spend the holidays with a German host family, experiencing first-hand how these holidays are celebrated in Germany.

Whether for a festive meal, a pleasant afternoon enjoying Christmas cookies, or an invitation for the entire holiday week, the time that international students share with their hosts is a culturally-enriching experience for everyone.

Please note: Unfortunately, the homestay programme at Christmas/New Year’s Eve cannot take place this year due to the current situation. We are looking forward to next year’s programme and wish you all happy and healthy holidays!
