Mannheim - The city of squares

Situated on two rivers (Rhine and Neckar), this city with cosmopolitan character offers all the advantages of a modern metropolis. The symbiosis of urbanity and nature, history and modernity as well as the cordiality of the residents give Mannheim a special charm.

Mannheim's city center is arranged in accurate squares. Where in other cities streets bear the names of famous people, in Mannheim's center there are letters and numbers instead. The individual blocks each have a combination of letter and number. The city hall, for example, is located in "E5".


Mannheim has many sights to offer: the baroque castle Mannheim, the Jesuit Church, the Paradeplatz, in the middle of which stands the Grupello Fountain, and much more.

The most famous is probably the Mannheim Water Tower. Impressively, the Mannheim landmark stands in one of the most beautiful art nouveau settings in Europe - with water fountains, strolling paths and arcades, it is a popular meeting point for locals and visitors alike.

The Luisenpark is the largest park in Mannheim and is considered one of the most beautiful parks in Europe. It is located on the left bank of the Neckar River, close to the city center in the area of a former Neckar loop and is divided into two parts today: The Lower Luisenpark is the oldest part, open to the public and considered a garden monument. The Upper Luisenpark is used privately. Here you can admire animals, plants or the Chinese garden among other things (see picture).
