Explore Mannheim and its surroundings

Are you visiting the chequered city for the first time? Or would you like to explore the city in depth this time round? Here are some recommendations from the Mercure Hotel Mannheim am Friedensplatz to make sure your trip will be a great success.

Even though the third-largest city of Baden-Württemberg is not exactly a famous tourist hot spot, it has a lot of lovely places to offer. The most important of them is the Friedrichsplatz square in the city centre – the location of the famous water tower, Mannheim’s main landmark. Drop by and take a picture of the city’s most iconic post card motif. Of course, the baroque Mannheim Palace is a must-see on any tour of the city. Shopping enthusiasts are advised to head straight to the city centre for its multitude of exciting stores: shoe lovers in particular are sure to get their money’s worth in Mannheim. Rather spend your money on a nice meal? No problem. Thanks to Mannheim’s cosmopolitan population, the city centre offers restaurants from countless different countries. Our reception staff at the Mercure Hotel Mannheim am Friedensplatz will be happy to recommend the best eateries in the city.
