Lonely Planet review

Mannheim's trophy sight is the lemon-and-red sandstone Schloss , Germany's largest baroque palace. Soon after completion in 1760, Elector Karl Theodor moved his court to Munich. The recently restored state rooms are a baroque-gone-mad feast of stucco, marble, porcelain and chandeliers. Mythological gods dance across the walls of the frilly rococo Kabinettsbibliothek (library), while gilt-framed ancestors keep a beady eye on the Rittersaal (Hall of Knights).
