Nicknamed the "City of Squares", due to its distinctive grid network of avenues and streets, Mannheim is a UNESCO City of Music, home to a championship hockey team, and termed one of the most inventive cities in the world. Diesel engines, buses, and other vehicles are assembled here and the city's factories manufacture a variety of goods; particularly electrical goods. A number of breathtaking buildings dominate, but expats will soon be enjoying the Mannheimer Mess twice yearly festival, the fresh "Marktplatz" farmer's market, and the beautiful lakes and gondolettas of Luisenpark.
