Discover, enjoy and shop til you drop: welcome to Mannheim! Also called "city of squares", the university city and former royal capital of the Electoral Palatinate is located in the heart of the tri-border region of Baden-Württemberg, Rhineland-Palatinate, and Hessen.
Nestled between the Rhine and the Neckar rivers, Mannheim was laid out in a grid pattern. In addition to architectural gems such as the city's characteristic Romanesque water tower and the Jesuit Church on Friedrichsplatz, Mannheim also offers wonderful shopping opportunities. For lovers of art und culture, the city, which was home to the legendary poet and thinker Schiller for two years, offers many a prestigious name: the Kunsthalle Mannheim, for example, with its extensive collection of German and French paintings from the 19th century.
