On the Electors' tracks
The spectacular baroque Mannheim Palace marks the starting point of Kurpfalzstraße. The palace once was the residence of the Electors of the Palatinate region. Peace and quiet is a given at Luisenpark, the city's largest park landscape.
Mannheim's landmark, the water tower, rises 60 m above Friedrichsplatz square, which is considered one of Germany's most beautiful Art Nouveau sites. It is also home to the Kunsthalle with a collection of modern and contemporary art.
