We have no idea why the triangular Marienplatz (Mary’s Square) at the end of a pedestrian shopping street (Westernstrasse) would be rated so highly on Tripadvisor, whereas so many interesting sites in Paderborn are not even listed. Apart from the houses at numbers 2 and...More

Step in from one side and "Marienplatz" waits at the end of a long, busy shopping street. Choose the other direction and it gives you time to breathe after visiting the breathtakin' Paderborn dome. So... whatever direction you come, stay a while as we did.

All the side streets empty onto this plaza with dozens of sidewalk cafes, bars, restaurants, etc. Live theatre, some shopping, tons of sit-in-the-sun (or under an umbrella) people-watching. This is the place to go to unwind, to pub crawl, to meet friends, to people-watch.

A great place to just sit back and relax after shopping or sightseeing and take a well earned drink or if the weather is warmer an ice cream.

This place is in the middle of the main squere ! Just a nice place for photo shooting or having a short break when you are shopping or walking in the squere! It can be also a meeting point for gathering people!

It is a nice spot for a break in the middle of the pedestrian street. Next to it is Paderborn's best ice cream shop. During summer months this place is popular and also popular for street artists

This place is a nice place to have a short rest while visiting Paderborn. It is certainly not that spectacular but the architecture is pretty nice and there are lot´s of cafes around so the choice is pretty good. As the center of Paderborn is...More
