What’s a European city without a historic square at its heart? In the 11th century this was a wheat market; and today it’s the gathering place for the city’s people and the city’s spirit. With attractions like the old stock exchange, Europe’s largest book store; a great range of restaurants, bars and cafeterias, all arranged prettily along charming little terraces; The Goddess, a statue commemorating the Austrian cannon ball siege; the la Metaphor theatre; the Voice of the North newspaper building; the ornate Opera Building; and the elegant Rang deBeauregard, the square is simply bursting with curiosities.. Almost all events of note that happen in the city happen here: gay pride marches, festivals and Christmas markets. There is literally no better place in the city to people watch. At Christmastime, the place has an added treat in store: a huge Ferris wheel will up raised and the views of the town in the holiday season are simply unbeatable.
