2 day trip to Black forest
I want to visit black forest on 4th August.Could you please tell me what the convenient way is to travel from Mannheim? and for that should I book now itself. I have 2 days 4th and 5th Aug. Will 1 day be sufficient for Black forest ? Then I can over some more sights in Germany. Or please suggest some plan for Black forrest trip.
Re: 2 day trip to Black forest
Go to bahn.de and check the trains to the Black Forest. Nice towns are for example Triberg (waterfall) or Titisee-Neustadt. If you click on "local transport only" you will only be shown local trains, which can be taken with the Baden-Württemberg Ticket for 18 Euro. This ticket is valid one day, so to go back you need a second ticket.
To read more about these towns, type the name of the town .de
Travel Tips for Mannheim
Krempelmarkt - fleamarket
There is a big fleamarket on "Neuer Messplatz" (Neckarstadt) almost in spring, summer time and autumn. (near Herzogenriedpark)
We have not been there for year, but for you, I even went there again today! :-)
For those of you, who like fleamarkets: we were told, that the fleamarket here is rather good, but not for the sellers, but for the shoppers. Just come and see.
Have a look at the dates on their website (only available in german). On the website, there is as well a map how to come there.
Something I have to say: If you wanna sell there, you have to pay a fee. These fees are for the costs on that place. If there is still some money, they distribute it to social projects. A great thing, in my eyes!!!
Schwetzingen is just a few miles away from Mannheim and it is a totally different world!!!
Discover the beautiful palace, the huge gardens belonging to the palace and the cute town of Schwetzingen!
Enjoy the travellogue, that might give you an impression of this place!
The National Theater in Mannheim was founded in 1779, but the current building is a modern one that was built from 1955 to 1957.
It has a large glassed-in foyer on the ground floor, with stairs going up to the large and small performance halls on the right and left. The acoustics are fine, and you have an unobstructed view from every seat. In addition to opera, they also do operettas, musicals, ballet and spoken theater.
I've seen a mixed bag of opera productions here, from a grim version of Verdi's Troubador to a very funny staging of Mozart's Don Giovanni, complete with graphs and pie-charts projected onto the stage while Leporello sang his famous register aria listing the numbers of women his master had seduced in various European countries. (The winner of course is Spain with one thousand and three.)
Since Mannheim is only 37 minutes by ICE-train from Frankfurt, it's no trouble to get there and back for an opera performance.
Mannheim University & Castle
The University of Mannheim has a reputation of being particularly strong in Business Administration, Economics and Social Sciences. It has about 10.000 students, over 15 percent of whom come from outside of Germany.
Most university facilities are located in Mannheim Castle, one wing of which is shown in the photo. I chose this particular wing to take a picture of because it is just about the only one that is not covered with scaffolding this year. A lot of renovation work is going on at the moment, especially on the front side of the castle.
Mannheim, a very important river junction.
"Our Rhine paradise journey."
This was the turn-around point on our 'dream-come-true' Rhine journey.
