    A natural recreational area and conservation area on the Rhine in the southwest of the city of Mannheim

    The forest park was originally not in Mannheimer possession, but was community forest of the still independent community Neckarau, south of Mannheim. The Neckarauer forest included not only the forest area in the Rhine bend, but pulled looser wooded to near the town of Neckarau and was referred to there as a "bush". Already in 1798 a ban was issued to cut wood without permission. At the beginning of the 19th century, however, larger deforestations were made to pay for war debts and to win fascines for hydraulic engineering measures. In addition, a Rhine puncture was planned - a project that was eventually abandoned after concerns of Prussia in 1832. After the yield for agriculture was estimated to be cheaper, first the "Stollenwörth" and later also the "Rottfeld" (cleared field) were cut down. So remained in about the still wooded area.
