You may have noticed that many of the German streets are not laid out in the orderly fashion that you are accustomed to in the states. In Mannheim city center, this grid pattern, unusual among German cities, can be found here making navigation a little easier. The historic Mannheim Palace is utilized by the University of Mannheim as one of their central buildings. Tours are still available of the Palace and grounds. You are sure to find people around that can provide more background on the Palace and its illustrious former inhabitants. The Luisenpark is home to an array of activities to engage and delight you and your family. Take the kids in gondolettas on Lake Kulzerweiher if you're looking for a family activity. The Heinrich-Vetter-Weg trail has sculptures from a variety of known artists for your viewing pleasure. There is also an open air theater providing performances from operas to concerts that take place regularly. How to pick and choose what to see and what to do first is an obstacle you'll have to overcome on your own!
Put the top down on your specialty rental car for an afternoon drive north along the Bertha Benz Memorial Route. Though husband, Karl Benz, patented the first design for a car that could do more than drive a short distance to the church or the grocery store, it was his wife's suggestions that facilitated better handling and longevity of the vehicle. She also provided live action marketing to a group of unsuspecting townspeople as she passed through to her destination. Follow the trail of her clandestine road trip that gained her notoriety. Another fabulous reason to follow Bertha's path, is that it leads you into the wine region. If architecture is more up your alley, head south to Bruschal Castle, in the town of the same name. A visual spectacle, the castle is painted inside and out in a bright motif. There are three wings of cut sandstone and an ensemble of matched buildings complimented by carefully manicured gardens. It's worth looking into what events and festivals are happening around the time of your visitation as well! You never now what you'll find.
