Only a few kilometers south of Mannheim is Schwetzingen. They have a great castle with a wonderful garden. It's on the list of candidates for UNESCO world heritage sites.

For more info about Schwetzingen see this website:

Hi there,

i enjoyed the visit to the planetarium Wilhelm-Varnholt-Allee 1 /68165 Mannheim /0621/415692 /http://www.planetarium-mannheim.de/

You lie in your seat and watch different skies from all around the world.

Re: What to see around Mannheim

There is, of course, Heidelberg, with the old city quarter, and its castle. A portion of the Bergstrasse, (Castle Road), also runs north towards Darmstadt. There are many castles, and castle ruins in a very small area along the highway. The main page for the Bergstrasse can be found at: http://www.diebergstrasse.de/index.php?id=3&L=2. There are links from there for the towns and castles. Gary

Travel Tips for Mannheim

Blumepeter

by tessy

I don't know how to translate this name... In the first weekend of october, the Blumepeterfest takes place around the watertower, the landmark of Mannheim. It is an charity event. All you eat, drink, win, hear, ... are donations. The money which is earned is given to the poor people of Mannheim.
You may ask, who is that Blumepeter? Well, the story goes back to Peter Schaefer (1875-1940), a man of small stature. The story says, that he was not only little, but also stupid. To earn at least a little bit of money, he sold flowers in Mannheim. No, no, no, don't think of beautiful flowers, he had little , small, not beautiful flowers. But he always wanted to make jokes with the people. So they called him Bloomaul (??? english translation not possible, hahahaha). Now, each year (since 1970) a person from Mannheim gets the Bloomaul medal.
There is a monument of Blumepeter on a place in Mannheim, calles Kapuzinerplanken (O5 ,O6).

Luisenpark

by Carino

One thing I didn't expect in Mannheim. The great Luisenpark invites one to walk around in nature, enjoy a romantic boat trip, have nice food or play around.

Admission in summer:
Adult: EUR 4
Student: EUR 3
Children: EUR 2
Children under 6: free

Park behind the water tower

by King_Golo

The wonderfully designed park behind the water tower is a great place to meet, hang out, watch people and cool your feet in the fountain. Bruno Schmitz designed the park with its two opposing archways and a big fountain in the middle. In summertime, the park is full of people enjoying the sun there, while in winter, Mannheim's Christmas market takes place here.
While nearly everybody does it, the police is not too keen on people playing in the water or relaxing on the lawns. Apparently, they come checking every half an hour or so if everybody's behaving well - it might not be a good idea to be swimming in the fountain just then! ;)

Schloss and Schloss Church: Magnificent Baroque palace of art-lover Prince Elector Carl Theodor - now the university
3)Jesuit Church: Most important Baroque church in south-west Germany -Mozart praised its atmosphere and outstanding acoustics
4)Christuskirche (Christ Church): The second of Mannheim's two most impressive churches
5)State Museum of Technology and Labour: Award-winning museum with a brand-new exhibition concept

7)Luisenpark: Lovely 100-year-old public park in the centre of the city
The Mannheim Planetarium is run as a non-profit private limited company, a business form that has worked successfully with other planetaria as well.
After almost 20 years of uninterrupted operation with a Mark VI projector, the management is now contemplating a modernization. Science has developed many new facets meanwhile, and advanced planetarium technology has the capabilities to demonstrate them.

Mannheim the Boring

by hexman76

"Boring city and people are very snooty, RUDE"

I have lived in Germany off and on, I am in the governement work and I have visited many places throughout Germany and Mannheim just happens to be the worst place to be in on my list.. Lets say if your an American visiting Mannheim, the only thing to see that is worth seeing is the water tower and the gardens and fountains that surrouns it, "thats all" nothing more to see, the Germans that live there are rude and unfreindly to each other and to any American that it visits. There is also a very bad Turkish problem in Mannheim, if your white your a target to the younger Turkish men, so dont go out at night without some friends, they like to stab people with knifes and the Germans do nothing to help, especialy the German police. Germans in Mannheim are afraid to start a racial conflict because they feel that they are still being punished of what happened so long ago, I say get over it, and stand up for yourselfs, but instead they let the Turkish population just abuse them and take over. Well so there you go, Mannheim just happens to be the place where you want to go if your a soldier, but if you are a traveler, stay clear, thats my input, believe it or not..
