The City of Squares!

Mannheim is famous for its unique street layout due to the city being distinguished by squares rather than by streets. This former fishing village offers lively culture and is home to local iconic landmarks the Water Tower, Mannheim Palace and the popular Friedrichsplatz.

Mannheim is a shopper’s haven; this is reflected in popular shopping areas The Planken, Marktplatz and Paradeplatz which are surrounded by a variety of restaurants, cafés and bars.

Take a stroll or a streetcar (Strassenbahn) through the city’s quarters around lively Kapuzinerplanken and Paradeplatz. Be sure to visit the modern and contemporary art museum Kunsthalle Mannheim, Sebastian's Church and catch a production at the National Theatre Mannheim.

Heidelberg and the picturesque Luisenpark are perfect for a day trip, especially during the spring and summer months. Mannheim Central Station has routes to major cities such as Berlin, Hamburg, Amsterdam and Prague.
