Hi!

I would like to know how far the Mannheim hbf exist from this stoppage means is it walkable distance or not?

Hi

"neben Gleis 1 am Hbf)" means next to platform 1 at the main station.

I assume you want to catch the ICE to Stuttgart? That train will leave from platform 5. 7 mins is tight but doable. If you miss 21:57, there is another ICE to Stuttgart at 22:31.

Seven minutes are very tight. The bus station is right next to platform one, but some way down. If the train you want to catch leaves from another platform you'll have walk there. If the bus is on time and you're a fast walker, it can be doable.
In case you're going to buy a special ticket valid only for the booked train, I would buy it for a later train. If you missed your train, you'd have to pay full fare.

Travel Tips for Mannheim

Mannheim's grid-structured centre

by King_Golo

Common for US cities, but highly unusual for Germany: Mannheim's centre is designed like a grid. Streets here use letter-number combinations instead of normal street names. This makes it pretty confusing for visitors (and perhaps also for postmen!), but one might get used to it when being in Mannheim for a longer time. The structures are already very old and survived all the damages of two world wars. They date back to the time when the castle was built.
There is a system behind the grid structure, but despite having heard the explanation twice, I'm not capable of explaining you. Best to find out yourself!

Einstein Year in Mannheim

by rowo

For the Germany's Einstein 2005 Year in Mannheim there is a big extra exhibition about Einstein names "understanding Einstein" at the Landesmuseum for Technic and work. (see more about the Museum in my What to Do Section Mannheim). The exhibition about Einstein is running till April 2006! So dont miss it, if you stay in Mannheim!

Organic food

by christine.j about Goya Lounge

I don't know which kind of food to choose in the list "select the appropriate theme for this restaurant". I have eaten there three times so far and will go back. Each time something else was on the lunch menu for the daily specials.Probably "international kitchen" may be appropriate.
It's an organic restaurant, meaning the meat is from free range animals and the vegetables are from organic farms. This also means the food is more expensive than in other restaurants, but the difference is not too much. I never spent more than 20 Euro for a lunch for two. The specials for lunch are between 5 and 8 Euro, really not to bad.
The location is great for lunch, right in the centre of Mannheim. Next to the Paradeplatz, the Stadthaus has been transformed into a "Biocenter", with a supermarket, a butcher for organic (free range) meat, a hairdresser - organic hairdressing? probably a special shampoo? - and several organic restaurants.
The Goya Lounge has a large terrace and we usually sit outside. The terrace is on the far side from the Paradeplatz, so it's not too noisy.

18th century Artists

by christine.j

Prince Elector Charles Theodor was very interested in lots of things. During his reign Mannheim became a center for music, art, theatre, but also science and astrology.
In this picture you can see the poet and playwright Schiller talking the manager of the Mannheim theatre( on the left). An artist is working on a sculpture of the Prince, a scientist is studying the world and some others are talking about new methods.

The staircase inside the castle

by christine.j

Visiting the newly opened museum I understood for the first time why the staircases in these castles were always so wide and had several "platforms" in between. In any "normal" house, the stairs are leading up or down, pretty straight, with just as many curves that you can walk comfortably. In the castles the staircases had these platforms, so the prince and his family could demonstrate how much they thought of their visitors.
Someone outranking them or someone they really liked would be met downstairs, someone of the same rank on the first platform and so on. So Mr and Mrs Average - if they had been invited at all - would have to climb up all the stairs before greeting their host, while another prince would be greeted downstairs.
The stairs had to be so wide because of the ladies' fashion. When you're wearing a very wide skirt, you need more space than we today wearing jeans!

In Mannheim castle there are beautiful paintings in the staircase, if you visit there, make sure you look up to the ceiling. My favourite here is the painting which shows the three little grand-daughters of Charles Philip. They're sitting on a cloud, and can easily be recognized because they're the only ones in the painting who are fully dressed. The painter didn't dare to paint the little princesses in the nude.
The second picture shows a somewhat grumbly rivergod, the Rhine.
The originals were painted in the 18th century by Asam, but since the castle was destroyed in World War II, they were repainted by Carolus Vocke in 1956.
