    Korn Platz

    Korn Platz

    Favorite thing: Just around the corner from the Markt platz is the small korn Platz. Here you get an unusual view of the castle.
    Also to be admired is Peter van den Branden's baroque madonna statute - built 1718.

    Fondest memory: The University, Markt and Korn Platz are the sites of christmas markets too in Heidelberg.

    Favorite thing: The modern fountain in the middle of the square is dedicated to well known humanist, cosmographer and Hebraist Sebastion Munster who created a wood cut showing
    a view of Heidelberg in the 16th century.

    The fountain consists of planes and arches symbolises the planets and a large globe is the earth which is so huge signifies man attachment to it.
