Events and Activities for Visiting Scholars
The Welcome Centre organizes activities for visiting scholars and their families on a regular basis. Besides the yearly held reception of international scholars bellow you can find some examples of what we offer in our programme:
- day trips to the area around Heidelberg (in English)
- day trips by coach in other cities and areas in German
- international breakfasts
- games and crafts activities for children and adults
In addition to this, visiting scholars can also join the excursions for international students organized by the International Relations Office. These are guided by a German-speaking person.

Moreover, other activities are organized by the „Partners for International Friendship“ („PFIF" in short). PFIF is a group of volunteers who organize a weekly programme of events especially for visiting scholars. The events, which take place at the guesthouse INF 370 are a very good opportunity to make contacts and find friends.
