A good place in the center of Mannheim,wish the authorities could restrict the youngsters from breaking bottles and littering the area with left over pizza cartons,cigarette buds. Provides a good view of both sides of Mannheim city and it is generally full during summer

We were just driving through Mannheim and saw this beautiful park like setting in the middle of Mannheim. We went back around and parked to get a closer look. WOW. Green grass, colorful flowers, fountain, pool, water tower and an arbor of vines. So relaxing...More
