The water tower is a well-known landmark of Mannheim. The tower was built from 1886 to 1889 on today's Friedrichsplatz on the eastern edge of the city center according to the plans of Gustav Halmhuber. The tower is 60 meters high and has a diameter of 19 meters. It was the first municipal water tower in Mannheim and initially had to fulfill all functions of drinking water supply, including maintaining a constant water pressure. After the construction of the higher Luzenberg water tower in 1909, it served as a reserve elevated tank until 2000. The tower has been a listed building since 1987.

The Christ Church is a Protestant church in the Mannheim district of Oststadt. Together with the Friedenskirche, it forms the Christ peace community. Between 1907 and 1911 it was built according to Christian Schrade's plans in a new baroque style with Art Nouveau reaches. Hardly affected by the major war destruction in 1943/44, it has almost been preserved in its original condition. In its rich shape, the Christuskirche adapted to the upper middle of the Eastern town and formed the crowning glory of the Evangelical church building activities, which became necessary due to the strong population growth during Mannheim's industrialization.
