Living and studying in Mannheim

Situated at the heart of the Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region, the Hochschule Mannheim benefits fully from an impressive economic and cultural setting.

With a cosmopolitan population of 325,000 inhabitants, Mannheim is the second largest city in the state of Baden-Württemberg and situated at the heart of the flourishing Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region. A plethora of highly innovative medium-sized enterprises and global players provide an interesting industrial setting for the University and facilitate a constant and profitable transfer of knowledge. A number of renowned universities and research institutions have also established the region’s reputation as a focus of research and (higher) education.

Mannheim, the city with Europe’s largest inland port, is also the home of inventions that have changed the face of the world, including the bicycle and the world’s first automobile, the Carl Benz Motor Car. From 1720 to 1778 Mannheim was the residence of the prince-elector and the splendid baroque castle, among the largest of its kind anywhere on the continent, is an imposing reminder of the fact.

The city is just as renowned for art and culture as it is for technical innovations. Major museums, cultural institutions, performance venues and sports arenas all contribute to the profile of a city famous for its fine jugendstil buildings. Mozart and Schiller spent part of their lives here.

The landscape around Mannheim is another of its charms, situated as it is at the confluence of the Rhine and Neckar rivers and within easy reach of the Odenwald forest and the vineyards of the Palatinate.

So a degree course at the Hochschule Mannheim promises not only excellent job prospects but also an entertaining and stimulating period of study.
