How to get to Heidelberg:
Heidelberg is well connected to the German railway system. Hence it is very easy to reach Heidelberg via train. See for the German railway webpage. The closest airport in Frankfurt airport, which is the largest German airport in Germany. One can travel from Frankfurt airport to Heidelberg via train in one hour (a stop in Mannheim is needed). There is roughly a train every half an hour from Frankfurt airport to Heidelberg.
We recommend to buy the "9-Euro-Ticket" for June as this permits travel on buses, trams, and local trains within Germany in June inside Germany.

One has to wear facemasks on German public transport. Similarly, the Heidelberg University requires facemasks inside buildings whenever there is another person within 1.5m to oneself.
