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.
