  • A visit to Mannheim to should be the Castle not to be missed. You should however preferably take before Saturday noon, then a lead in Baroque costumes takes place through Castle and Castle Church. The castle is situated close to the main train station and close to the famous museums of REM.

  • Looked at the castle in the Baroque exhibition at the Reiss-Engelhorn-museum-related. Huge palace complex that impressed alone due to their dimensions. Rebuilt after the destruction of the second world war. Share of the Interior also restored. As a result a little lack flair. The Museum on the ground floor is quite interesting. The absence of a castle garden also clouds the overall impression. Nice idea the scope with a view to the virtual Park. Can not replace the original.

  • 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.
