Old Market Square - Review

Built in 1210, this old city market square is still somewhat worthy of its name. Combining architecture, history and enterprise, it was more than merely the location of the weekly dairy, herb, cabbage and stove-fitter’s markets: it was also the venue for various city festival - midsummer, Whitsun, and the dance by barefoot bakers. Check out the 1488 St. Florian Fountain, the rows of medieval burgher houses, the world famous Tomaselli Cafe, and the Rococo facade of the archiepiscopal apothecary. You will also find the smallest house in the historic center of the city here - No. 10a was built to close off an alley. And as with public tourist attractions everywhere, the square is a great place to people watch.
