A Charming Gathering Place

In the heart of a pedestrian area, this is often the site for festivals and markets. Loads of cafes, shops and restaurants nearby.

The "marktplatz" is directly located into the city center of Bonn. As the german name foreshadows it is the area where the main market is held from monday until saturday selling fresh vegetables and fruits. The "marktplatz" is surrounded by historic old buildings, where the old mayor house is the nicest and interesting one

It is worth sitting in the sun and having a drink and watching the people going by. The surrounding houses are nice, but the square is nothing special.

On Christmas there was a beautiful market that they built up here with an old styled Ferris Wheel and nostalgic market stands. On other occasions however the market offers general food and herbs as well as meat and bread typical to most German markets that can be found. When you're in Bonn however you won't miss it.

Loved the fountain in the shape of an obelisk. Lots to see including the town hall building. Plenty of shops around the Marktpltz to tempt you as well.

Visiting a saturday afternoon in November there wasn't to much to see here, but the weather was nice and the architecture surrounding the square was beatiful. But for some reason there was parking spaces on the square which was very disturbing. Without them it would have been so much better.

The Marktplatz is a nice area, quite large with buildings from many periods. We liked the old town area of Wismar because the buildings are not all of one period with an Art Nouveau building right next to one from the 1600's. It makes the area feel more real and alive.

A place where people of different ages eat sausages and other traditional foods, drink a beer, chatting about everything in the Moon and the stars, while a music band is singing local/German songs. The atmosphere is really capturing in a very special way. Happy, friendly faces, they behave like they didn't see one each other for so many years and... More
