International concerts are hosted at the SAP Arena regularly.
The National Theater has top-class opera, acting and ballet performances on offer for those seeking cultural highlights. Mannheim has the second-largest Baroque palace in Europe, and one of the most beautiful and largest Art Nouveau complexes surrounding the Mannheim Water Tower – the landmark of the city. In addition to many cultural institutions, the city also offers you relaxing options. You can unwind while taking a stroll along the banks of the Neckar, or through the Luisenpark, which is one of the most beautiful parks in Europe.
You can also walk to the Planken, Mannheim’s shopping street. You can find everything your heart desires in this shopping street in the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region.
