Breathing new life into Mannheim
In 1990, the State Palaces of Baden-Württemberg was tasked with bringing new life to Mannheim Palace. Furnished palace rooms were intended to explain their history and function simply and vividly, like works of art. However, after the destruction of the war, hardly any of the palace's former magnificence remained. Instead, of the court of the prince-electors, only the University of Mannheim resided here. Only the magnificent staircase, Knights' Hall, Court Hall, and Guard Hall were reconstructed in the 1950s.
