ILF students from the LL.M. Finance and LL.M. International Finance programs accompanied by ILF staff went on a field trip to Heidelberg on 1 December 2018.
Fifty-two students travelled to the historic university town to explore the quaint yet lively tourist hub. Upon arrival the students split into two smaller groups and commenced a two-hour guided walking tour to the main sights. At the heart of the town, a short mountain cable car ride away was the Heidelberg Schloss where the students learned about the long standing history of the castle and surrounding area.
The students then proceeded to "Kulturbrauerei" for a traditional German lunch and afterwards had a free afternoon. Most chose to further explore the town and enjoy the bustling Christmas markets full of festive cheer before they departed back to Frankfurt later in the evening.
