Schloss Mannheim, Mannheim
(4.4/5 based on 200+ 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. Docent-guided tours are usually given in German, but you can call ahead to arrange one in English.

  • We had a very good lead. Unfortunately, not all spaces were accessible due to an event. Bad, we found that you had assigned us does not indicate when purchasing tickets. In the reconstructed Castle only a few rooms have been reconstructed. You can see - it corresponds to the former Zeitgeist - elsewhere the facilities. Those who are interested in history in General will see but some exciting and hear.

  • The castle itself is huge, but largely uni. The Museum is much smaller, but that's enough also. The leadership with € 2 surcharge is not overpriced, but it is the entrance. Just as a student, he is worthy.

  • Those who are generally interested in castles, is right in here. The castle is huge and is used by the University for the most part.

  • 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.
