ESN Heidelberg is your local section of the international Erasmus Student Network. We are around 25 local and international students whose mission is to help in the social and practical integration process. This is mainly done through activities like local events, city tours, day and weekend trips, parties or social inclusion initiatives. By that, we promote different values and goals like intercultural tolerance, social engagement, environmental sustainability and health & well-being. This website provides an overview of our association, our team, our activities, our ESNcard and answers to your questions.
