Influences from all eras have left their marks on Mannheim’s architecture. You can chose to discover either the city centre or the Oststadt district.
Experience the venerable “Oststadt” (East Town) with its grand mansions, which once belonged to merchant and industrialist families. The “Friedrichsplatz” (Frederic’s Square) with the city’s landmark “Wasserturm” is the starting point of this tour. This art nouveau site – one of the most beautiful in Europe — charms the visitor with its overall design and many small details. You can find its design vocabulary all over the city.
A second version of this tour takes you to the city centre with its mix of historical and modern buildings. Interesting stories and background information provided by the tour guide make sure architecture lovers get their money’s worth.
