Mannheim

The Water Tower

Duration: At your own pace
Overview: The water tower, Mannheim's famous landmark in the east of the city centre, was built between 1886 and 1889 by Berlin architect Bruno Schmitz, and was later the starting point for the design of Friedrichsplatz square. The captivating fountains in front of this monumental building, which is lit up at night, are a true sight to behold. Part of one of Europe's largest and most beautiful ensembles in the art nouveau style, the tower is adorned with bronze figures of Triton and his sirens, two groups of stone centaurs and a statue of Amphitrite, wife of the sea god Poseidon, on its copper roof.

The Pop Academy

Duration: At your own pace
Overview: Music has become one of Mannheim's hallmarks since Joy Fleming invented the 'Mannemer Blues'. A number of other artists such as Laith-Al-Deen, Xavier Naidoo and Söhne Mannheims have followed in her footsteps – and have enjoyed chart success. It seemed only fitting that the city should be the home of the Baden-Württemberg Pop Academy.
