Heilbronn can be dated back to the Old Stone Age (30,000BC), and through the years has been in “knightly custody”, the centre of the thirty-year war, and has been under French occupation. By the 1800s the city had become the staging area for military forces against Napoleon. Heilbronn grew rapidly during the early 1800s with industrialisation hitting Germany and the first train lines being introduced in the area. During World War II the salt mines that were located around Heilbronn were used as storage facilities for paintings, artwork, and artefacts. Heilbronn was severely destroyed in the war and suffered greatly. The latter half of the 1900s allowed Heilbronn to rebuild and the city experienced huge amounts of rejuvenation, including the city centre becoming pedestrianised and the city theatre being redeveloped.
