Schloss Mannheim is an important historical site, because the building originates from the late medieval fortress Mannheim; the layout of that early fortress can be recognized in the circular plan of Mannheim city center. Schloss Mannheim was constructed on the site of the stronghold, on commission of the Elector of the Palatinate in the 18th century. It is indeed an... More

For and old castle, we'll more of a stately home, this has been beautifully restored. The audio guide in English is very good, and has two guides talking, a lady and a gentleman. (Just listen to the two pronunciations of "brass", one northern and one southern.) There are fewer exhibits than you may expect but the layout and audio guide... More

This is an interesting place in the middle of a busy city. For 7 Euros you get an audio handset tour of a selection of rooms in this former castle - lots of history and information with artifacts. Bear in mind that you are required to lock up your bags (1 Euro returnable deposit per locker) before you enter the... More

Schloss Mannheim shares it´s physical space with the University of Mannheim and was undergoing renovations during my visit. As a castle freak and a photographer, I was expecting a larger area to tour and to photograph. The time required to tour was short and sweet. And, it cost an extra 4 euros (for a total of 10 euros) to use... More

This is a castle that has been converted into a University. The middle section is still castle. There are three rooms that I think are simply amazing. You get a hand held your guide with admission. It speaks in English too. However, you have to pay extra if you want to be able to take your own photos. The building... More

Was part of a educational program at the University of Mannheim. The palace is huge and is well kept. Great place to be educated at.

Beautiful palace! My family and I visited on a cold, rainy day, and it turned out to be perfect. The tour is fairly short, probably not more than an hour and a half, and the palace was basically empty so we got to enjoy the experience free to roam and not be packed into spaces like sardines with hundreds of...

We drove through some serious road restrictions and traffic jams (stau for those that speak German) to find this place. We drove by it twice before we found a place to park. We ended up parking in a small lot next to the palace next to an indoor hockey rink on the university property for free, always a bonus in... More

The castle was heavily destroyed during the last world war, but the curator made the smart choice to stage it to evoke life as it was for the court. The good explanation of the audioguide - in English - serve that purpose well.
