Things to do in Mannheim

Marvel at the iconic Friedrichsplatz

The Friedrichsplatz is really the centre point that the city of Mannheim is built around, and consists of scenic neo-Baroque gardens and paths surrounded by some of the city’s best known landmarks. A trip here rewards visitors with a beautiful central fountain of criss-crossing jets that light up at night, while the Mannheim Water Tower hovers above. This is a beautiful spot for relaxing away from the buzz of the city.

Explore one of Europe’s largest palaces

Mannheim’s Baroque Palace (Schloss Mannheim) is a vast, fascinating historic residence, with a huge facade and courtyard that together span a total floor area of six hectares. Despite experiencing severe damage during the Second World War, this beautifully restored architectural wonder is still filled with treasures and artwork gathered throughout the palace’s varied history.

View the city from above

Mannheim city centre is often referred to as ‘the chessboard’ thanks to the city’s structured, intersecting formation of streets, all of which are given grid references rather than names. One of the best ways to appreciate this lattice-like network – as well as the greenery and industrial surroundings of the city – is from above. That’s why we recommend taking a trip up Mannheim’s 200-metre-high telecommunications tower - from here you’ll see all the way across the Rhine plain to the Odenwald forest, and can even enjoy a meal in the revolving Skyline restaurant as the city stretches out below.
