His father, Leopold Badt (1858-1929) raised his children in a rarefied cultural atmosphere, giving them every opportunity to experience art. The younger Badt attended the Berlin-Charlottenburg Reformgymnasium, graduating in 1906. Between 1909-1914 he studied art history and philosophy at the universities of Berlin, Munich and finally at Freiburg (im Breisgau) under Wilhelm Vöge.

Hetzer studied art history under Wilhelm Vöge and Heinrich Wölfflin. However, it was at Basel that the teaching of Friedrich Rintelen greatly affected his work, particularly his appreciation for Giotto. He wrote his dissertation under Rintelen on the early paintings of Titian with a degree granted in 1919. Hetzer was appointed professor of art history at the University of Leipzig in 1923, focusing on the art of the Italian and northern Renaissance, Giotto, Titian and Raphael, and Dürer.
