It was originally the main living arrangement of the Prince-voters of the Electorate of the Palatinate of the House of Wittelsbach. Some portion of the palace is utilized by the University of Mannheim. The castle, which highlights woven artworks, furniture, paintings, porcelain and flatware can be visited on a free-stream premise with audioguides.

The city of Mannheim, established in 1606, was strengthened and at the current site of the castle there was a stronghold called Friedrichsburg, now and then serving as elective habitation for the Elector, one of the most significant regional princes of the Holy Roman Empire.

The genuine palace dates from the eighteenth century. At the point when Elector Karl III Philip had confession booth discussions with the inhabitants of his capital Heidelberg, he chose to make Mannheim the Palatinate's new capital in 1720. Karl Philip chose to build another palace as his living arrangement on the site of the old Friedrichsburg. It was a piece of a general pattern among the German princes to make grand new homes in that time.
