If you are arriving on an internal flight from Berlin or Hamburg your plane lands at the small Mannheim Airport, a short drive from the city on the main A6 road.
Mannheim is fairly easy to navigate, having five major highways that circle and radiate outwards from the centre. Taking advantage of a Sat Nav is definitely a good idea.
International flights land at Frankfurt Airport, from where high-speed trains bring you into Mannheim Central Station. Tram lines 1, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 9 give easy city access to the station and our rental cars are located at ground level.
Both the Neckarau and BMW offices are a few miles outside the city centre and accessible by localtransport.
Once you have collected your car hire you are ready to start exploring the city of Mannheim. Visit the famous Water Tower, the district of Ludwigshafen just across the river or head off to other neighbouring German towns. If you are visiting Mannheim on business, your car rental gives you quick access to the industrial and business parks that surround the city. You will find plenty of multi-storey car parks available and convenient for all tourist attractions and length of stays. Like most German cities, Mannheim operates an inner-city environmental zone. Don't worry, all of our vehicles meet the emission requirements.
A major quirk of Mannheim is it city centre layout. Designed on a grid pattern like a chess board, the streets have letters and numbers rather than names, which can all be a bit unsettling when you first arrive. You quickly get used, however, to navigating by blocks rather than streets. Don't worry if you get lost, just ask a local, they are used to directing visitors. Once a small fishing village and later the home of Goethe and Mozart, Mannheim is now a bustling and vibrant multilingual community, a temporary home to many US army personnel and a base for business giants such as John Deere, Daimler and IBM.
Enjoy a lively nightlife centring on venues that range from Irish pubs like Murphy's Law to the relaxed SOHO jazz club with its extended happy hour. A more radical nightlife can be experienced at Blau, while both Onyx and Café Bernstein are popular places for drinks and light snacks with both locals and visitors. Culture vultures can visit the National Theatre and take in a different ballet, opera, play or comedy show on every night of the week.
