Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fantastic central street with great shops. This area and arcades are a shoppers paradise. There are a lot of road works currently so I downgraded the area slightly. You have to walk it all to appreciate the area.

Shopping, shopping, shopping is very easy here. What you don't find, you'll probably not need. Have a refreshing stop at one of the many delicious cafes. Situated in the heart of the town, the Planken is very easy to reach on foot on by tram. Don't forget your credit card. Besides, the main attractions and sights of the town are within walking distance.

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.

Planken is the shopping street in Mannheim. It offers a wide variety of shops catering to almost every need.
From the retail discounter to vintage Champagne, from H&M to Burberry and Prada (both with dedicated boutiques) you will find almost everything here.
Well worth a visit are the Engelhorn Houses, which are a hidden gem in that they constitute one of the largest, if not the largest, single-owned and single-location retail company in Germany. The amount of products offered on so many different levels of interest and in so many different categories is simply staggering.
Also be sure to visit the two streets running parallel on either side (Kunststraße und "Fressgass") to find smaller boutiques and specialty stores.

A very European experience and scene for us Americans. Lots of interesting shops and sidewalk cafes along a pretty street closed off to car traffic. Although the weather was overcast, the street was busy with people enjoying the shopping. The city trains quietly coming and going along the center of the street. Pretzel stands on every street corner. Lots of people watching as we walked along to the old wasserturm (watertower) at the end of the street and then back to the broad cross street leading to the schloss (castle- more like palace). All within walking distance.

Clean pedestrian shopping street with plenty of possibilities for shopping as well as having a break for some food, drinks, snacks, icecream ...

Don't forget to have a look at the streets to the left and right.

Recommend "chocolaterie Stoffel" for sweet treats.

Icecream place is Fontanella (they "invented" spaghetti icecream as it seems 😉).
