Springtime in Heidelberg

Due to its geographic location, the city of Heidelberg enjoys a relatively warm climate. While the summers can be hot, the winters tend to be mild with only occasional snow falling on the hills where EMBL Heidelberg is located.

This year’s winter, however, seems to have ended particularly early, as this Picture of the Week, captured by Marius Bruer from the Communication Department, shows. The iconic EMBL Advanced Training Centre – celebrating its 10th anniversary this year – reflects the blue sky, the clouds and the rays of the Sun. In the foreground, trees show not only their first buds but are already a lush green.
