I've lived in Mannheim for almost a year now. It's a beautiful city, filled with interesting people, food and sights, and within driving distance of more castles, cathedrals, and parks than I can count. The public transportation system is excellent, with both train and bus routes, and nearly the entire city is bicycle accessible.
The Wasserturm (Water Tower) in the middle of downtown is Mannheim's main attraction. Its beautiful sculptures and incredible fountain are surrouned by excellently maintained landscaping and tons of fun shops and restaurants. It's also conveniently accessible by Strassenbahn (train). There are two stops directly next to the Wasserturm, and it's only a few stops away from Mannheim's main train station.
I'm a fan of Italian food, so of course my pick for best restaurant in Mannheim is Vapiano. Located in the center of downtown, right beside Wasserturm, Vapiano is the best pizza and pasta available. No reservations neccessary, casual attire, reasonable prices (about 10euro per person).
- Pros:friendly people, patient with English speakers
- Cons:large, and a little overwhelming to newcomers at first
