MANNHEIM - Germany

Mannheim has 315.000 Inh. and is located in the north of the state Baden-Württemberg, a town full of industrie, the river Neckar is floating in the river Rhein in Mannheim so there is a big port on the Rhein. The distance to Stuttgart is 130Km. and 70Km. to Frankfurt. On the left side of the Rhein there is Ludwigshafen (165.000Inh.) - the sistertown of Mannheim, the Rhein is the border between Mannheim and Ludwigshafen, AND between the states Baden-Württemberg and Rheinland-Pfalz. Less then 10 Km. an you are in Heidelberg (150.000 Inh.) - a great urban Area with ca. 1,8Mil. Inh. From town to town you can take the Tram... A Region with wine, hills, lovely landscape, culture, but also urban, industrie and a strong economy.

Interesting region. I've always wondered why Mannheim has a grid plan. It's quite unusual in Europe.

Nice pics, looks like a very pleasant place. Some great public art there too. What's the main type of industry in Mannheim?

Well Mannheim was the residence of the electoral Palatinate (Kurpfalz). Many residence citys in germany have planned structures like Karlsruhe or Ludwigsburg. It started about 1600 in the holy roman empire that local monarchs built there own capitals. Some of them decided to build complete new citys because in the biggest citys of that time the clergy or the bourgeoisie (is there a fitting english word for the german "Bürgertum" in this context?) would have been a competitor.

Mannheim has a strong automobile-, railway-, electoindustry (ABB, Daimler, Bombardier, Alstom etc.). And of course, on the other Rheinside in Ludwigshafen a really big chemical-industrie (BASF)! The list of named son's born in Mannheim is very long.

Thanks all for support.
