Mannheim

Mannheim is situated at the confluence of the rivers Rhine and Neckar, in the northwestern corner of the state of Baden-Wurttemberg. The Rhine separates Mannheim from the adjacent Rhineland-Palatinate city of Ludwigshafen. The Hessian border is north of the city. Mannheim is the largest city of the Rhine Neckar Area, a metropolitan area with 2.4 million inhabitants.

Luisenpark
The Luisenpark is beside the Herzogenriedpark and the palace garden and is one of the large parks of the city of Mannheim built between 1892 to 1903. It is located next to the Neckar River and is divided into the lower and upper Luisenpark and the running meadow. The Luisenpark is named after princess Luise Marie Elizabeth of Prussia, a close relative of three German emperors: William I was her father, Frederick III was her brother and William II was her nephew.
