Beginning its life as a hospital-- the outline of which you can see in the paving stones of the square--Kornmarkt became a marketplace in 1557. Now, it's a central destination for many events and celebrations, including the town's Christmas market. It's also an excellent jumping-off point for your tour of the city. Take advantage of the convenient parking below the square, and take in the impressive view of the castle looming above. If you plan to spend time at an event, remember to wear comfy shoes, as the uneven cobblestones can be hard on the feet. Happily, the many cozy cafes and taverns provide plenty of options for sitting down.

  • I was here the first Saturday in October and the square was pretty empty. There is an ok fountain. Not much to see. 
  • 廣場不大、遊客不多,四周全是古老的建築。廣場中央的聖母雕像,相當漂亮,頭頂黃金裝飾在溫暖的陽光下,燦爛耀眼。整個廣場充滿寧靜、祥和的氛圍。 
  • Advice to access up to the Castle from this square. If it is not full of tourists is pleasant to observe the fountain with view on the Castle. Wide and square without many pretensions, that would define how cute

  • Excellent location in the Centre of Heidelberg and to be able to walk to everywhere. Breakfast is good, room is quiet, parking garage around the corner and plenty of restaurants in the city centre. Start of the bus tour nearby for a quick introduction to the city. A city with lots of attractions and a delicious historical atmosphere. Very worth it.
