This is in the center of the city and the double decker sightseeing tours start from here. Some nice statues surround the historic square. The city hall has a very nice sounding carillon, playing at noon.

It was a very busy market when we were there with a variety of products in the stalls. At the city hall end there is a golden statue of a horse rider that some speculate is Otto the Great.

The market place is big enough to wander around. Statues, and the old CIty Hall make it very enjoyable. If you are hungry, there are some good restaurants.

These markets were OK. The food offered was standard market fare with lots of fried stuff. Hard to find anything fresh or at least not deep fried. We visited with friends and found some novel ideas. Bought nothing though. It is a very large market...More
