“In 1997, we were convinced that a festival can enrich the world and change it a bit. I must confess that I remain faithful to this belief even after 25 years. Change starts small, on site. So we have worked passionately all these years to get to the bottom of the burning questions of the world with the means of art on the banks of the Neckar. And that will continue to be the mission of Heidelberger Frühling in the future.”

Thorsten Schmidt, Artistic Director

The Heidelberger Frühling was founded in 1997 as a classical music festival and has since developed into a year-round cultural enterprise. It organizes various festivals, concert series, conferences, support programmes for young artists and competitions, which reach about 47,000 visitors a year.
