How to reach Mannheim
Coming by train is a very convenient way. Deutsche Bahn has regularly special offers and you can save a lot of money when you book your ticket early in advance.
From Paris or Zurich for example it only takes 3h to reach Mannheim.
A cheap but maybe not the fastest way is to travel by long distance busses. More and more companies are offering this service.
For example: www.meinfernbus.de travels between Frankfurt Airport and Mannheim for a few Euros if you book early in advance. Check out the others: www.busliniensuche.de/busverbindungen/
Another cheap option is to use the carpooling offerings from www.mitfahrgelegenheit.de, www.mitfahrzentrale.com, etc.
If your airline offers “Rail&Fly” tickets as well (cost usually ~30EUR), this is also a cheap option to get from the airport to Mannheim railway station. It may even make sense to e.g. fly to Cologne/Bonn airport if you get a very good deal and then take the train to Mannheim ( 2h transfer time)
Airports close to Mannheim are: Frankfurt International Airport (FRA), Frankfurt-Hahn(HHN), Stuttgart (STG), Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden(FKB)
