Mannheim earned the nickname 'Grid City' thanks to its chessboard layout of 144 blocks, true to the Baroque pattern of dividing towns into regular squares. The great benefit of this being that it's very difficult to get lost, so you are free to take in its 2000 shops, boutiques and culinary delights to your heart's content. With so many museums, gardens and churches to discover, Mannheim is an ideal city break. Be sure to try the spaghetti shaped ice cream, one of the most popular products originating from Mannheim.

The Water Tower is the emblem of Mannheim and is nestled in one of the largest and most beautiful art nouveau areas of Europe, the Friedrichsplatz.

The city boasts the second largest Baroque Palace in Europe. Revisit the courtly atmosphere and lose yourself amongst the many original artworks, porcelain and furnishings from that period.

Take a relaxing walk in Luisenpark, considered one of the most beautiful parks in Germany due to its striking array of flowers. Enjoy a 'gondoletta' boat ride or visit the biggest original Chinese tea house in Europe for a taste of China.

The Eichbaum Brauhaus, with its own brewery, is a traditional German restaurant that has a lovely beer garden and serves typically hearty German food.
