The Rose Garden and the water tower, a further Mannheim landmark, are located to the left behind the hotel. Passing the tower, enter the open green space, the “Augustaanlage”. Then turn left into Werderstraße, and continue past Christ Church to the end until you reach the lower Luisenpark. Crossing through the park heading for the telecommunications tower, you will reach the banks of the Neckar. Cross the Friedrich Ebert Bridge to the other side of the Neckar, where a broad, natural river landscape at the heart of the city lies spread out before you. First continue to the right past the clinic, then turn back and follow the Neckar back towards the city centre, crossing the Kurpfalz Bridge after about 1.5 km. Go on beyond the National Theatre to get back to the hotel.
