All highlights within walking distance!
You can explore almost all the highlights of our city on foot. The Friedrichsplatz, one of the best preserved neo-Baroque and Art Nouveau buildings in Germany, with its emblematic water tower, the new Kunsthalle and the congress and event centre "Rosengarten" is one of the busiest and most beautiful places in Mannheim, and at the same time the beginning of the shopping mile "Die Planken".
Go to the opera
The Nationaltheater Mannheim (NTM) is less than 200 meters away from our hotel. It is one of the largest and oldest municipal repertoire theatres in Germany. With the biennial International Schiller Days and the Mannheim Mozart Summer as well as its approximately 350,000 annual visitors, the Nationaltheater Mannheim is omnipresent as the flagship of the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region and reaches a broad regional and national audience.

Visit the castle
You can also reach the Mannheim Baroque Castle (now the University) on foot. With a length of almost 450 metres and a constructed area of six hectares, the extensive complex is one of the largest castles in Europe. Mannheim Palace is the second largest baroque palace complex in Europe after Versailles Palace - and has exactly one window more than the French model 😉
The Planken, designed as a pedestrian zone, are Mannheim's main shopping street. It is the most visited shopping mile in the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region and ranks among the top locations in Germany in cities with a population of around 300,000.
Whether art gallery, Reiss-Engelhorn museums or baroque castle: Our hotel is the ideal starting point to reach the cultural highlights of the city on foot. And if you like to move outdoors, even the Landesmuseum für Arbeit und Technik and the Planetarium are within walking distance.
Go for a tasty meal
As the centre of the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region and vibrant, multicultural city, Mannheim offers a large selection of first-class restaurants for every taste and every budget.
Whether tasty pizza, Italian-Mediterranean food, the best sushi, traditional German cuisine or international star restaurants: from the hotel you can easily reach the best restaurants our city has to offer.
Even if you enjoy spending your leisure time in the countryside, the way is not far away. Mannheim's Luisenpark with its more than 3000 trees of 130 different species and a sea of flowers of more than 200,000 flowers in spring and autumn, is the ideal place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.
Less than 300 meters from the hotel starts the Luisenpark, the central park of Mannheim with ash train and street workout device. And just behind it you reach the Neckar, along which you can walk many kilometres undisturbed.
