Only a few kilometers from the Rhine-Main-Neckar conurbations, Heppenheim
lies between the Odenwald and Ried. Someone strolling through Heppenheim's old town will actually breathe history: medieval half-timbered buildings, charming alleyways and idyllic squares define the impression of the neighborhood, wine and festival region. The castle of Starkenburg stands high above it. Spring in Heppenheim stands for sun-drenched vineyards and perfectly blooming fruit trees; summer for theater at "Im Hof un uff de Gass," the Bergstrasser wine market and much more. When the autumn paints the leaves yellow-red and the vineyards shine, it is also a perfect time to come to Heppenheim. The winegrowers are busy at harvest time, and every corner has the scent of fresh wine-Federweißer and Federroter-and, of course, onion tart.
