Simply entering the Jesuit church is enough to take anyone's breath away. The interior of Mannheim's Roman Catholic parish church is simply magnificent. Designed by Paul Egell and Peter Anton von Verschaffelt, it is rich in baroque art, as amply demonstrated by the high altar or the ceiling fresco. The church's baroque exterior is also impressive. It was designed by Alessandro Galli Bibiena and is modelled after the church "Il Gesù" in Rome. Along with Mannheim's baroque palace, the arsenal and the old observatory, the Jesuit church gives the city its baroque face.
Top tip: In the immediate vicinity of the Jesuit church you'll find the Schillerplatz. This little oasis of green is the perfect place to relax after visiting the palace or church in the summer. If the weather turns nasty, the nearby cafés are ideal for recharging your batteries.
