  • Today's Neckarstadt-West, as we know it, originated in the former "Neckar Gardens". As of 1679, it was established north of the Neckar on the "Pflügersgrund" (plowing grounds) as a town garden, and at the end of 1682, it was given to 560 citizens for use. Since then, a lot has happened in the young and best-preserved 19th century district of Mannheim. 
  • At present, 22,000 inhabitants live here, consisting of long-established "Neckarstadt dwellers", immigrants of the first and later immigrant generations, young creative people and families.
  • The Capitol (concert and event hall) has been a feature of the district since 1927.
