How to get there?
The language classes are distributed all across the city so I will list the nearest stop to each building( this might have changed already so if anything is not covered refer to the office at L9-7.
B6 (Universitat West)
What you can have for lunch around there?
There are Doner shops near the Hauptbahnhof (If you are willing to walk a bit or just take the tram to Kunsthalle) I would recommend Katik’s Doner.
If you are at B6 then you can eat at the Mensa
To eat at the Mensa, you will need to get a temporary card from the DAF office at L9-7 (you will need to pay a deposit of 25 Euros and if you live in Ulmenweg you will definitely need it because it is used to pay for using the washing machines)
VRN Tickets must be purchased monthly cover your travel around Mannheim and can be purchased at the machines at the Haltestelle
- If you are living at Ulmenweg, there are 2 Turkish markets nearby
- One next to Netto and one near Lidl (both are nearby Haus 42 and 43)
- Go around the Turkish shops around Marktplatz
Lidl, Netto, Rewe, Edeka, Penny and Aldi
Go Asia at Galeria Kaufhof (Paradeplatz)
Mannheim Central Mosque

Thai: Surin’s Kuche
Mr. Chicken (One of the few not-Doner halal places)
