    Market square

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place, the "Hauptmarket" is the most beautifull spot in town. It's the haert of the town and the center for nightlife. There are many old houses situated along this place, such as the Roten Haus, the "Steipe" and some graet examples of classism architecture houses.
    Important sights at the marketarethe Marktkreuz and the Marktbrunnen as well as the Baroque entrance to the Gangolf church with the image of saint Gangolf

    Market Square

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In a country famous for its market squares, Trier has one of the most impressive. It was first laid out in the middle of the tenth century and gradually took shape over the next 300 years as churches and secular buildings were constructed. St Gangolf's Church looks down on the square from the south side. The fountain was placed in the centre in 1595. Nowadays, McDonald's -fortunately hidden behind a tastefully renovated fa├žade - faces Germany's oldest pharmacy across the square. A colourful Christmas market is held in the square every December.
