What do I need to know before retiring in Heidelberg?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Heidelberg, they said...

"Before retiring in Heidelberg, expats should be aware of the cost of living, which is higher than the national average. They should also research the local healthcare system and the availability of medical services. Additionally, expats should familiarize themselves with the local language, as most people in Heidelberg speak German. It is also important to research the local culture and customs, as well as the climate and weather in Heidelberg. Finally, expats should consider the availability of leisure activities and entertainment in the city," explained one expat living in Heidelberg, Germany.

"Just try to learn the language; it isn't really necessary but it will increase your opportunities and help you forge friendships with the locals (some Americans here never venture out, socially or culturally, out of the large and established American community.) Other than that just to have a good time and enjoy the area, its a great city with beautiful architecture and a thriving international culture," said another expat in Heidelberg, Germany.
