Love this square. I enjoy people watching and sitting outside on one of the benches is lovely. Also great when there is a weekend fair. The square is a wonderful meeting place for everyone.

Which seems to be where most plague columns in Europe are located. Take a look at it before doing some shopping or having something to eat or drink. Better yet...people watch!

Christmas Markets were held around the Plague Column, very enjoyable. This square seems to be a very popular place with both tourists and locals
