Planken is a main street of the city. There are a lot of stores for shopping, a cinema (Cineplex) and much more.
For tourists who have an hour or more to see Mannheim I recommend to walk through Planken, starting at Paradeplatz towards Wasserturm (water tower), then to cross the Friedrichsplatz square with the water tower - at the end there is a Karl Benz Memorial in Augustaanlage 9 with a metallic 1:1 copy of the first car in the world as invented by Karl Benz in Mannheim. You can actually sit on it and make a photo.
