Travel destination Mannheim in Baden-Wuerttemberg

Mannheim

Increasing popularity of the Rhenish city

The Baden-Württemberg city, nestled between the Rhine and Neckar, is the sister city of Ludwigshafen in Rhineland-Palatinate and faces it over the Rhine. The horseshoe-shaped historic centre of the city, which was laid out in 144 "squares" is characteristic of the city.

In the 17th century, the blocks were given numbers and letters in place of street names and remain known by these today. The "square city" attracts ever more visitors and now registers over 1.1 overnight stays per year.

On the trail of the Electors

Mannheim Palace in Kurpfalzstraße, built in a baroque style, once served as the residence of the Electors of the Palatinate and provides a spectacular starting point. Relaxation can be foundin the Luisenpark, the largest park in the city.

Towering 60 metres over Friedrichsplatz, the "Water tower", Mannheim's landmark, is considered one of Germany's most beautiful art nouveau buildings. An art gallery can be found here, whose collection of modern and contemporary pieces is well worth a visit.
