"Die Quadratestadt” or “city of the squares”, that’s what everybody calls the unusual city Mannheim.
The city was given the nickname for a good reason. To help people easily orientate in the streets of Mannheim, the streets and avenues in the city center are laid out like a chess board. Each address in the quadrate takes a form of a grid reference, such as L1. The unique design of the city goes well with its lively cultural life. You will enjoy the cultural program of the city: concerts and festivals, opera and ballet, countless exhibitions and many other fabulous cultural events.
