Travel Tips for Mannheim

Pop im Hafen

by tessy

SWR 3 is a radio programm which you hear especially in south west Germany. They plan a lot of events everywhere in the region. In 2005 they started a pop concert which was called "Pop im Hafen" (in the harbour). The pop star was the local Laith Al-Deen. This year, in 2006 they had Cosmo Klein, Silbermond and Reamon here. But there were too much people, in my opinion, because the concert was for free. We were lucky and the security let us enter where we wanted to enter. But it was very difficult to see the stage. But listening to the music was already great!
BTW: There is a pop academy in Mannheim. And the concerts take place in the harbour just in front of the pop academy.

The last ruling prince-elector of Mannheim, Carl Theodor, loved to go hunting.His hunting parties were famous.He had trees cut and trails built in the woods north of Mannheim, several of whom are still existing in the Käfertaler Wald - translated literally the wood in the beetles' valley.

There is a well-known spot in this wood, the Karlsstern, named after Carl Theodor. Several trails start here, there is a large playground, a deer-park, goats and even buffaloes are kept there and you can watch the wild boar safely behind a fence. (Quite often you can also see them when walking in the woods, actually I prefer a fence between me and them). A small bird park is close-by and in summer you can buy ice-cream or coffee from some kiosks.

The trails setting out from the Karlsstern are well marked, the shortest is about 1 km, the longest about 42 km. On the shorter traily you can always meet other walkers, but the 10 km, 20km or the 42 km trails take you deep inside the wood and not too many people take them.

The last time we walked there we came across one of the old borderstones put up by Carl Theodor. These stones didn't mark the border between towns, but they showed the boundaries of the hunting areas, telling people who was allowed to hunt there and who wasn't.
The stone in the picture is very withered and hard to read, the year on the bottom is 1789.

Hugely impressive outside, not sure if it's open to the public as it seems to be part of the university, but still worth the short walk from the station to have a look. Not a bad view from the train either.

The eye in the triangle

by christine.j

If you've read your Dan Brown, you've read about the eye in the triangle and its many theories. In the church attached to the castle the eye is above the altar and in the Jesuit church it's in the center of the dome. This is the very highest point in the Jesuit church, thus symbolizing that God is high above us , seeing everything.The triangle symbolizes trinity.
Leaving all theories about possible conspiracies apart, it never ceizes to amaze me how the builders back in the 18th century were able to build churches as tall as this one and put the eye up there.
However, what you see today is an exact reconstruction, as the church was destroyed in WW II.
