MANNHEIM - VISTAS 1

i used to live and work in mannheim; i am still an adjunct professor at the university there and return regularly for lecturing ... last time i collected a few digital pics, eventually ... mannheim is located where the river neckar goes into the rhine, and it grew around a (very large) castle, now housing the university ... but mannheims 'icon' is the famous watertower, surrounded by some lovely "jugendstil" buildings ...
