Mannheim Things to Do: 74 reviews and 107 photos


The last reigning prince-elector of Mannheim, Charles Theodor, loved hunting. In fact, a deer park near a large playing-ground in the forest near Mannheim started out as a hunting ground for the prince. To make sure he'd always come across some deer, they were kept there. Today you can go and watch them, and bring them dry bread.

The prince's love for hunting is shown on the railing of balcony in the main shopping street, the Planken. What you see is not the original, but a true copy. You have to look up, as not to miss it.

Directions: About half way down the Planken, on the right side,when you walk away from the watertower.
