This marketplace, with the Rathaus in the background, is very typical of this kind of town in the 15th and 16th centuries. It is pleasant, but not overly remarkable.

A town's Rathaus square is always the place to be. This one is no exception: the statues, the church towers, and the reflective globe. This square is quiet, great for a short rest between the features on either ends of the town.

We have been here several days and spent more than a moment on this square. Today we sat and had an Aperol Spritz (an omnipresent German cocktail of Prosecco and Orange Aperol) while we watched German life go by. We saw two weddings and wonderful,...More

Lutherstadt Wittenberg is a nice little stop. I would recommend an afternoon spent here seeing the sights. You can walk from the Castle Church to Luther’s House on the other side in about 10-15 min. but there are many sight and stops along the way....More

Many more interesting marketplaces have survived in Germany, but Wittenberg's market square is interesting in its own way. It's a little too big for this small town, but it's historical. The architectural dominants of the square are the Old town Hall and the double bell...More

This should not be a primary destination for you, it is like so many other market squares in Germany (and Austria, Czechia, etc). But, it's worth enjoying the atmosphere. If you're there at the right time before Christmas or around Reformation Day, there will be...More

A very lovely square. Huge and so much history. There are many old buildings worth a visit and a picture, a couple cool statues, and lots of restaurants and shops nearby. A true heart for Wittenberg.

This square contained a nice statue of Martin Luther, also a large gazing ball. One afternoon a postal van set up a little protable post office and had some Martin Luther post marks and stamps. It was so convenient.

Marktplatz (=Market square) is a Unesco World Heritage site since 1996, together with Luther's House, Castle Church and City Church. There are beautiful buildings all around, in pastel colours. The highlight is the Renaissance Town Hall built in 1541 but rebuilt in 1926-1928. The entrance...More

What a lovely and scenic marketplace. I felt I was back in the middle ages! There is no vehicle traffic through here, so it does harken back to an earlier time.
