Mannheim is a compact metropolis, as you can see from the wide range of culture it has to offer. The National Theatre, the Reiss-Engelhorn museums and the Kunsthalle art gallery are internationally respected.
From 7th September 2014 until 1st March 2015, the Reiss-Engelhorn Museums will focus on how man deals with disasters. The exhibition "Mankind. Nature. Disaster. From Atlantis to today" goes from the mysterious tale of Atlantis to the present day, showing how mankind has dealt with famous and less well-known disasters throughout world history.
