From Mannheim's most central square, you can quickly reach the city's various shopping streets and major attractions. At the entrance to the so-called "Planken", the square "Paradeplatz" is a popular meeting place for shopping, lunch or just for the sake of it. Especially in summer, it seems to magically attract the people of Mannheim. The neighbouring N1 town hall boasts cafés, restaurants, shops and the city library. Beneath the Paradeplatz lurks a deep bunker, which can be visited on selected dates.
