Singing, dancing, laughing and getting creative in the heart of the city. From 24 to 26 May 2019, Stadtmarketing Mannheim transforms the “Kapuzinerplanken” shopping area into a huge adventure playground to celebrate the anniversary of the Mannheim children’s festival.
The 16th edition of the children's festival is all about music – for obvious reasons, because Mannheim is a UNESCO City of Music. A diverse program, join-in activities, booths, and live stages let you experience the city's musical variety. Young and old are invited to make music and enjoy themselves. The Mannheim University of Music and Performing Arts returns this year and invites everyone to the "HofMusikTanzFest" on their campus.
There is more to Mannheim than just music. With its numerous parks and green places, the city is the perfect destination for families. The Federal Garden Show (BUGA2023) lets the little ones experience nature, while the "Freie Kunstakademie Mannheim" teaches them about the creative side of the city.
In addition to many returning attractions – such as a children's tram, a gold panning facility, and a goal shooting wall – many new surprises await our young guests.
Thanks to our main sponsors – engelhorn, Fels, GBG Mannheim, and RNV – all attractions are free of charge.
Open on Friday from 2 PM to 6 PM, Saturday and Sunday from 11 AM to 6 PM.
