Planken shopping area

Mannheim's window to the world and the most popular pedestrian area in the entire region.

The main shopping street in the heart of Mannheim's squares stretches for 800 meters from the water tower "Wasserturm" to the square "Paradeplatz". Strolling in a relaxed atmosphere, shopping and simply discovering something new is a combination that makes the "Planken" a magnet for visitors way beyond the region. Countless retailers from every sector mix with traditional department stores to leave no wish unfulfilled. Individual style, niche products or high fashion - Mannheim's Planken offer everything and more. An extensive redesign is currently giving the area a new chic. From spring 2019, the Planken will boast barrier-free tram and bus stops, new tracks, new paving, new lighting and modern street furniture.
