From former harbour to a lively trend district and "anchorage" for musicians and creative people.
Mannheim's lively Jungbusch district brings a real Berlin vibe to the city. Between its industrial romanticism and harbour scenery beats the creative heart of the city. With facilities like the Popakademie Baden-Wurttemberg, the Musikpark Mannheim or the creative business incubator C-HUB, it is a focal point for the city's many creative people. Jungbusch has evolved from its former life as a harbour to become a trendy district without losing its special charm. If you want to get to know the real Mannheim nightlife, head to Jungbusch. The cultural festival "Nachtwandel im Jungbusch" attracts visitors from right across the region.
Top tip: If you want to get to Jungbusch, you have to pass the legendary "Rhodos" restaurant and its proprietor, Saki. The "Gateway to Jungbusch" is - like its owner - a true Mannheim original and a meeting place for workers, students and business types. Thanks to the Greek specialties and very late opening hours, you won't need to go to bed hungry after a long night partying.
