Happened to run across this because I stayed in the Bellvue hotel which is right next to the Prokurative. Very lively square or so it sounded at night. Beautiful architecture too..

Spacious square, built 1863 - 1867, often hosting concerts and cultural events. There are 2 coffee shops with outdoor seatings to enjoy the views from on a sunny day.
