United and Loyal

Heidelberger Franken

You are open for a unique and unforgettable student experience. You can imagine becoming part of a committed academic community, both benefitting from it and contributing to it. You also have nothing against making a few true friends for life along the way in doing so- Then we should definitely get to know each other and find out if we fit together

Connected for life.

We are Burschenschaft Frankonia, the oldest Burschenschaft fraternity in the region. We are a student community that has brought together generations of academics from all disciplines for about 165 years and that has fostered lifelong friendships and deep ties. A community that supports and enriches the student life of its member. A network for contacts among various generations, in which cohesion is valued above all.

Open for all.

Our doors are generally open for any immatriculated male students in the region who wish to contribute and commit to our community, regardless of country of origin, religion, political views or party membership. Our members come from such far-flung places as India, Canada and Sweden. All forms of extremism run counter to our core values. As a traditional Burschenschaft fraternity, we stand for a united, democratic and free Germany.

Independent and liberal.

We are a fraternity that fences traditional German student duels and identifies itself with colours, and we equally prize athletics, collective enjoyment and personal responsibility. We are conscious of our traditions, open-minded and forward-looking. We are subject to no governing association and we practice tolerance and liberalism daily. United and loyal since 1856.

Together we can achieve more.

The Burschenschaft Frankonia zu Heidelberg is a network that has grown over decades and is widely ramified in Germany and abroad, with currently around 300 members. In addition to a strong community and personal commitment, we place particular value on the best possible degree – as the basis for a successful life. And for this, our federal brothers are always ready to help each other. Effective joint learning and preparation is just as much a matter of course with us as the expert support of older semesters and our “old men”
