With the streets left and right this is still the best place to shop in the region. When you come in the morning and lift your head you also can see great houses. Tram goes right through the street.

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.

Quite a descent offer of fashion, Brands such as Hilfiger and Boss, but also department stores like Engelhorn, P&C or Galleria. good for a couple of hours of fine shopping

I think the Planken have lost part of their charm because they more and more equal to other main streets in other german cities - same shops same looks...

Planken is the main shoppimg street in Mannheim, together with Breite Strasse. Only tram and delivery vans are permitted to enter these walking streets.
At this time, the whole area is a huge construction site to replace the tram tracks, but shopping as usual, only some street vendors had to give way.
access to inner city by tram is temtorary unavailable, and visually impaired pedestrians encounter some difficulties in the maze of countless construction sites.
Parallel to Planken to the west runs a smaller shopping street with no construction sites. far less street cafes there, but some traffic.
