Geist Heidelberg

The International Science Festival – Geist Heidelberg is the European answer to the New York World Science Festival.

It is specifically directed towards the general public and every year brings the top national and international researchers of their respective fields to Heidelberg.

In the course of six to eight weeks, renown scientists, well-known authors, and representatives of recognized institutions will engage in discussion with layperson and expert alike, tackling the pressing questions of our time.

The festival stands for scientific enlightenment and education, diversity of research, and a democratically engaged citizenry.
