Mannheim Palace (Mannheimer Schloss)

Mannheim Palace is one of the largest baroque palaces in Europe. A landmark of the city, it was originally the main residence of the Prince-electors of the Electoral Palatinate. It is now primarily used by the University of Mannheim.

In the state rooms, several hundred original objects including furniture, paintings, tapestries, china and clocks, reflect the courtly atmosphere of days gone by. A very special jewel of the Rococo age can be admired on the ground floor. It's the former Exhibition Library of Electress Elisabeth Augusta and the only room in Mannheim Palace that has been almost completely preserved in its original state. The permanent exhibition Art and Culture at the Mannheim Court, includes selected pieces from the historical collections of Elector Carl Theodor. The natural history collection and the gallery of paintings of the court library, is also presented on the ground floor.
