Arthalle Mannheim

Taking a spin in the oh-so-hip oh-so-hip ghetto of Mannheim, Germany, we found that a little research was a must in order to have a truly fun and frugal frolic. We have been pleasantly surprised by a large number of vendors who will be able to assist you in the event of your choice. Some of these vendors are a bit of a mystery, but the more you talk to them the better. If you need a recommendation or want to know more about them, let us know. One of the vendors will be able to make your trip an experience of a lifetime.

Mainz Cathedral

Visiting Mainz Cathedral is one of the most popular attractions in the city. This imposing structure was built over a thousand years ago. It is home to many tombs of important princes and archbishops. There is also the Cathedral Museum, which has artifacts of the building's history.

You can visit the Old Town and the Electoral Palace on your tour of Mainz. The city is rich in architecture and there are plenty of things to do.

The Gutenberg Museum is a small museum with a fascinating display of the life of Johannes Gutenberg. It features two original Gutenberg bibles and a collection of manuscripts. You can also take a look at printing presses.

The city has numerous museums, parks and sites of cultural interest. You can spend a day exploring the city's historical collections and artwork.



Located on the banks of the Neckar River, Heidelberg is a lovely German city. It is a perfect base for exploring the surrounding region. It is also a UNESCO Creative Cities Network award winner. The city is home to one of the oldest universities in Germany.

There are several interesting sights to see. The best way to see the city is to stroll through the streets. There are many narrow streets. You can also take a walk along the Neckar.

One of the top sights is the Karl Theodor Bridge, also known as the old bridge. It was built during the reign of Karl Theodor, one of the most successful princes of Bavaria. The bridge is decorated with a brass monkey holding a mirror. It is a pleasant view from the river bank.



Located on the Mosel and Rhine rivers, the city of Koblenz is an ideal destination for a day trip. The city is famous for its riverside beauty and the rich history of the region.

Several riverboat and day excursion cruise lines operate from Koblenz. The most popular is the KD (Koln-Dusseldorfer) company. They offer cruises on the Mosel and Rhine rivers, as well as a few other destinations. Most cruises are one-day excursions, but you can also find shorter panorama cruises.

Another popular day-trip is a scenic transfer to Lucerne, which includes lunch and a visit to the historic Mount Pilatus. Aside from the view of the Rhine, the tour also includes a stop at the Deutschherrenhaus, a former Teutonic Order castle.

The Electoral Palace is another important site for architecture enthusiasts. It's an excellent example of early French Neoclassical design. There's a great view of the Rhine from the garden. There's also a museum dedicated to the history of navigation on the Rhine.


Located in the heart of Mannheim, this park is the perfect destination for families and children. It has a variety of features including slides, swings, a lake, a small zoo and picnic grounds.
