TTR236 German Railways from the air part 5 Mannheim and the Neckar valley
Enjoy the wonderful scenery as we journey to Mannheim, Heidelberg and the Neckar Valley. Mannheim is the most northerly city in Baden Württemberg. It lies at the confluence of three major routes from the north, funnelling these towards either Stuttgart or Karlsruhe and Switzerland. We visit the three entry points: the Rheinbrücke from Ludwigshafen (the Worms route) Mannheim- Waldhof (the Riedbahn) and both Weinheim and Friedrichsfeld (the Rhein-Neckarbahn). In Mannheim we look at the inter-urban tram network and visit the TV tower before heading 8km east to the university city of Heidelberg. Heidelberg Hbf has an “interesting” history! It was designed during the Nazi period though not built until the 1950s. It’s now a listed building. We visit Heidelberg city and castle (using the Bergbahn) and then continue west to tour the Neckar Valley – the secondary line to Stuttgart – where we meet the Karlsruhe tram-train network.
