Schau- und Sichtungsgarten Hermannshof

Reviewed By geo3 - Calgary

I'm a gardener, so this was a destination, and a worthwhile one. It's really a teaching garden (there was a class of horticultural students there while I was visiting), but it's also beautiful. And the cost is certainly right (free).
Even for non-gardeners it would be worth a visit if you are already visiting the old town in Weinheim, since it is very close by.
A previous reviewer mentioned that this garden shows how 'prairie' gardening should be done. That showed up in the selection of plants - for example, things like Amsonias and Baptisias, which are native to North America but really aren't used all that much in Gardens here. It's worthwhile for North Americans to visit this garden just to get ideas for what can be used in our own Gardens.
The plant species are generally labelled somewhere, although since the plants are often repeated not every single plant is labelled.

Badesee

Reviewed By Becky101090 - Willenhall, United Kingdom

A large, well-kept, open space with a beautiful lake and beach, as well as 2 small pools and recreational areas. It is reasonably priced to get in, cheaper if you buy tickets in bulk, as we did (with family over there they go regularly).
We spent two whole days there easily, it is great for young children as there is the choice of the swimming pool or the lake, and also opportunities to play in the sand.
There are a couple of food kiosks, average food served and I might say a little overpriced for what you get. You can also get drinks and ice cream too.
This place gets VERY busy when the weather is nice. There is plenty of shade under the trees but I would also take an umbrella just in case you can't find space under one of these, especially if you have children.
There are plenty of toilets dotted about and also lots of showers to rinse once you have been in the lake and the pool.

Automuseum Dr. Carl Benz

Reviewed By draygnol - NC USA

Carl Benz built the first automobile in a small workshop in Mannheim (destroyed WWII) not in this building. However, this was his first factory and it now contains a wonderful collection of automobiles and automobilia which will interest the whole family. Bertha Benz, Carl's wife, made the first "cross country" automobile trip and she receives her share of attention in this museum, too. A most enjoyable day out, and only a short walk from the train station. The Benz's elegant home is also worth visiting and is an easy, direct 10 minute walk away in the center of town.

Kletterwald Viernheim

Reviewed By Charman A

I came to the Kletterwald last weekend with my cousin and her family (total 3 adults, and one 8-year old). I was very pleasantly surprised with how much fun this excursion was. After a brief series of safety instructions, we were on our way, navigating several of the available parcours. What I loved about the Kletterwald was that there are variable difficulty levels that are clearly marked, so it gives a good opportunity to traverse some of the obstacles with the kids, but also separately try your hand at a few that are more difficult. Several of the obstacles were actually quite a bit challenging to navigate on the black course, which made it all the more fun. All of the equipment seemed very well maintained, and I always felt safe. I would definitely come back again.

Windeck Castle

Reviewed By saltacity - Weinheim, Germany

The “Windeck” is an old, mostly destroyed castle built in the early 12th century. It was meant to guard the town of Weinheim and surrounding properties. Its German name translates literally to “windy corner”. It was mostly destroyed by invading French troops in 1674 and never fully rebuilt. From the Terrace you have very beautiful views of the city of Weinheim. There is a restaurant and an open-air beer garden during summer. All in all a very recommendable spot for a drink / coffee or a simple meal.

Jesuitenkirche

Reviewed By Hendrik_NL - Rotterdam, The Netherlands

The Jesuit Church of Mannheim is situated close to Schloss Mannheim; it is a good plan to pay a visit to this church after the tour of Schloss Mannheim. The interior of the Jesuit Church is bright and inspiring, but with enough religious art to have the feel of a Catholic church. What can I do more than add some pictures to this review to underline the impression. A visit is to be recommended.
