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. Docent-guided tours are usually given in German, but you can call ahead to arrange one in English.

    Quite nice for a little tour to make a few photos. But then somehow nothing more. The University is housed in the Interior.

    Heidelberg or Mannheim - no question. The Mannheim Castle has much more flair and the rooms are simply prettier. I will never understand, why all Heidelberg drive to the Castle (am here maybe also not entirely objective). In addition to the visit to the main floor, which contains the Museum, you can also just stroll through the rest, because it is used by the University and train was renovated in recent years. Saturday tours on special themes take place frequently, such as Two cleaning women sweep Saeed - theres and d ' wife through the Castle! There is also a special programme for children.
