Regional information

Heppenheim, the administrative seat of the Bergstrasse district, lies at the edge of the Rhine valley, which is responsible for South-western Germany´s notably mild climate.

With its ideal location surrounded by the cities of Darmstadt, Heidelberg and Mannheim, Heppenheim – the "Pearl of the Bergstrasse" – is part of the greater Rhine-Main und Rhine-Neckar metropolitan regions. The city is characterized by its picturesque historic town centre, the starting point for excursions to the Odenwald, a local recreation area and UNESCO Geopark, as well as the nearby Palatinate region with its untouched landscapes. Lorsch Abbey, a UNESCO world cultural heritage site, is just a few kilometres away.

Heppenheim´s outstanding economic infrastructure was long dominated by fruit- and wine-growing. Wine of outstanding quality has been produced here for more than 1250 years.

The creation of favourable economic conditions has led to the development of a varied corporate landscape with attractive jobs.
