I'm sure you can find an appropriate course in whichever larger city you want to
be! My husband took advanced training through the Goethe Institute and is VERY
satisfied! His one'week course was in Munich.....

I would not reccommed to go to Heidelberg. The city is indeed very beautiful,
but just really small and the people have strong dialect which is difficult to
You can spent a week end in heidelberg. i think this would be enough

Hello - hard decision! 
Well, Heidelberg definitely is a very beautiful city as it is also a very old
and traditional university town. (There are quite a lot of tourists, though...)
Do you know Elvis Presley's version of "Muss I denn, muss I denn zum Städtele
hinaus" ("Wooden heart")? That was about Heidelberg...  ;-)   Not to far away is
the ancient town Speyer, and, if you like, Strasbourg just across the border to
France. The Neckar valley is very beautiful, too, with many small towns and
villages that are worth a visit. 
Frankfurt and Hamburg are  m u c h  bigger and of course offer lots of
attractions. Personally I like Hamburg better - the atmosphere of the old
trading company "Hanse" can still be felt... From there you could do trips to
the island of Helgoland and also to other seaside towns.
If you decide to go to Frankfurt, there is Goethe's birthplace and interesting
modern architecture. You should also try and go to the large forests of the
Spessart. Also a trip to Würzburg would be nice. 
So your decision also depends on what you like better: smaller or bigger towns?

My advice would be Heidelberg, as I prefer smaller places generally and as it
is, as I said, a beautiful old town with great surroundings.
Good luck with your choice!

By the way: Frankfurt and Heidelberg are very close, you can reach one from the
other in about an hour by train or car (cycling takes longer).
