The joy of experimentation, the desire for knowledge, innovation - that's what Heilbronn stands for. The small city has many facets. Some sights, such as the 13th-century Kilianskirche church with the Männle caricature on the roof, the historic town hall with its astronomical art clock, beautiful arcades and open staircase or the early Gothic building of the Nikolaikirche church can be explored on foot or by e-bike. Or you can take the hop-on bus. Explore the Hafenmarktturm (harbour market tower) with its hand-forged phoenix, the Schießhaus (shooting house) with its fascinating rococo hall or the Götzenturm (Goetz tower), where the famous Goetz von Berlichingen was imprisoned. On the roof, the silhouette man by the artist Hubertus von der Goltz balances over the abyss.
