I Lost My Heart in Heidelberg (German: Ich hab' mein Herz in Heidelberg verloren) is a 1952 West German romantic musical film directed by Ernst Neubach and starring Eva Probst, Adrian Hoven and Paul Hörbiger.[1] The film takes its title from the popular song I Lost My Heart in Heidelberg, whose lyrics Neubach had co-written in the 1920s.[2] It was part of a strong trend towards heimatfilm productions set in romanticised Southern Germany, Austria or Switzeland. It premiered in Heidelberg on 29 October 1952.
