Community Centre (Bürgerhaus)

The Bürgerhaus is a forum for meeting, education and leisure activities for all generations and cultures.
Numerous flexible offers, consultation offers and events of the VHS (Adult Education Centre) and the House of the Family take place here.

More than 30 groups offer many interactive opportunities to participate in.
The Bürgerhaus is managed cooperatively by the full-time staff of the Municipality Heidenheim and voluntary citizens.

Internet goes Ländle

Internet goes Ländle

Computer and internet have become a part of everyday life. Senior citizens also profit from the advantages of using computer and internet. You can try out how a desktop PC works and which everyday internet activities are useful. You can also come to revise the contents of your course at the Adult Education Centre (VHS). Test the opportunities offered by using the internet autonomously, without registration and supported by our internet guides (not during public vacations). You will find encouragement and solutions e. g. if you want to save an online bill, send an email with an attachment, plan a trip or use a usb stick ...

Herz- und Zeitverschenker

Herz- und Zeitverschenker

Overcome loneliness with this project of the registered association "Freunde schaffen Freude e.V."
"Every human being needs more than nutrition, nursing care and health care. We also need fellow human beings, emotional appeal, attention, appreciation and psychological support. Only the interaction of these components lead to a dignified, fulfilling life."
A circle of fellow citizens realizes this goal by visits at your home or further voluntary work. There is a monthly meeting for all volunteers at the Bürgerhaus. You are welcome to join us!

Generation Garden

Generation Garden

How, where and when nature can be beneficial to us can be experienced in the Garden of Wellness as well as in the wild nature. The offer is suitable for people of all generations e. g. from 8 - 80 years old.

Senior citizens know how it works, young people tend to it and it flourishes due to this happy cooperation.

Are your interested to take part in the project?

Workshop

Workshop

Four Volunteers work in the small wood workshop mostly for charitable organisations like schools or kindergardens every Tuesday from 9 am to 11 am. They repair chairs or make new teaching or playing material.

Skat Players

Skat Players

Did you know that skat was a popular pastime of the famous composer Richard Strauss? Or that playing skat is a popular game in Germany and organised as a sport in a federal federation, associations, a ranking list and even a national league? Playing skat is neither as strict nor as formal at the Bürgerhaus, but certainly worth a side trip if you like to bid high.
