Discover Mannheim

The remarkable charm of Mannheim lies in the versatility of the former industrial city. Mannheim owes its thriving business community and its variety of leisure activities to its favourable location embedded between the rivers Rhine and Neckar. Open-hearted and open-minded people, art and culture, historical sights, recreation and fun all await its visitors.

Built with the vision of an ideal city, Mannheim was modelled on a chessboard pattern by elector Friedrich IV in 1607. Like New York, downtown Mannheim is structured as a grid.
