Mannheim City Info

At the convergence of the rivers of Rhine and Neckar in the southwestern part of Germany is where the city of Mannheim is. Its layout which resembles that of a grid pattern is rare among German cities, although similar to those in North America. As of the year 2012, its population has stretched to 295,000. It spreads to a total of 144.96 square kilometres. 

This German city has been destroyed to rubbles during the Thirty Years’ War in the year 1607 and again in the War of the Grand Alliance 67 years after. In 1720, it was rebuilt through the Palatine electors. 

It is globally recognised for inventions that originated in the place particularly in the field of mobility: tractor, bicycle, and the automobile.

Mannheim Red Light District

  • Lupinenstrasse – formerly known as Gutemannstraße. This is where 18 houses used for sexual services are located. Approximately 120 to 140 women work here.

History of the RLD

Prostitution has been prevalent throughout Germany since the middle ages. A number of German cities since then operated brothels known as Frauenhäuser. Prostitutes back then were treated as honoured guests, who have maintained domestic order. 

However, in the beginning of 16th century, the increasing cases of sexually transmitted infections such as syphilis led to the persecution of sex workers. Although a campaign to fight venereal diseases during the Weimar Republic adapted the concept of decriminalising prostitution and instead have it regulated and controlled.

Even before the Second World War, Gutemannstraße was already established as a prostitution area. It was hit hard in a bombing during the war. In the year 1961, in an attempt to regain control of the sex industry, it was reestablished and renamed Lupinenstrasse by the city council to Sperrgebiet. Its name is derived from the lupine plant, but it is also known to be coined from Lupa, or what prostitutes were called back in Ancient Rome. 

How to find the RLD

Lupinenstrasse is quite easy to spot. It is the westerly side street of the Mittelstrasse, on the edge of the district Neckar- West. Upon arriving at the central train station, you can opt to reach the RLD within a few minutes via a taxi cab. There are also bus and tram stops.

Stay Safe in the RLD

Although there are a few districts where cases of crimes are continually rising such as Vogelstang, Neckarstadt-West, Jungbusch, street crime and violence are relatively rare in other parts of Mannheim so it’s is perfectly safe to roam around given that caution and common sense are applied.

Mannheim Adult Entertainment

One can expect a plethora of adult entertainment options in Mannheim. Its RLD boasts window prostitution in 18 different houses used for sex services. While most expect that drinking booze, and getting a lap dance are all that they can experience in a typical gentlemen’s club, such is not the case in Germany. Expect nothing short of hard-core action in the German setting. You can basically avail services other than just mere lap dances in clubs. Peep shows, for example, are popular here. These are extra features in strip clubs wherein clients are offered private cabins where they pay extra to see strippers in a private setting. 

Other offerings available in the city include FKK clubs (where women are totally nude), brothels, swinger clubs, erotic massage parlours, and adult cinemas, and adult shops.

Street Prostitution 

Street prostitution is a not so popular adult entertainment option in Mannheim as it poses a significant amount of risk in terms of security and hygiene. It has since been on a steady decline due to other flourishing businesses like brothels, and FKK clubs where the safety and health issues are fairly taken into consideration. Those who have remained in the business of street prostitution are mostly from Bulgaria and Romania. They typically charge at a minimum of 30 Euros.
