Schloss Mannheim, Mannheim

(4.3/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
One of the largest palaces in Europe, Schloss Mannheim was built in the 1700s when Prince Elector Carl Philipp decided to transfer the Palatinate's seat of power from Heidelberg to Mannheim. Though greatly damaged during World War II, the palace has been greatly restored to its previous grandeur. Walk through more than 800 exhibits, including original tapestries, furniture, and paintings. Pick up an audio guide to learn about the previous inhabitants of the castle and its history.

  • Very austere. So far only pity is not photogenic. Unfolding the history and architectural styles from the important place. Close to Central station and also shtrussenburn to stop Schloss so that access is easy. However repeatedly go in might not be.

  • Leave your car at the parking lot in the Center, it is only ten minutes walk to the shopping Strip. Photos without flash are allowed. Everything is not accessible because some offices are offices, but that open to tourists is really very beautiful. Also very beautiful statues. Worth the visit (paid)

  • Very Beautiful place and Nice to study.
  • I think it's nice to say I study in a castle :). But really inside, old rooms and horrific ways through the floors shows it clearly that this building was meant for something not that busy. Ridiculous long journeys through "tunnels". Even Doctor Who would be lost here. You can definitely feel the difference to the new buildings near the main place. The park outside is a good thing though. In the summer you have the feeling that it is a thriving place. The food bunker, as I call it, is quite okay. It has some seats better than in most restaurants in case of the view and surrounding. The meals not so much :)
  • Big building, historical place, went there when sightseeing, quiet atmosphere for students
  • i had the time of my life here.
  • It's very good and nice.
