While January was quite warm, February has turned out to be freezing. Minus 16 in the morning makes the minus 8 in the afternoon feel comfortably warm.

As far as touristy cities go, Mannheim has always been in the shadow of Heidelberg. It's even difficult to find some Mannheim souvenirs, for those visitors who'd like some.
