Kornmarkt, Heidelberg

3.8
#13 of 25 in Sightseeing in Heidelberg
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • This is the square, formerly known as "new market", it is now known as Kornmarkt (square bead). It is a lovely square surrounded by incredible buildings, with the source of Mary in the Centre and one of the best views of the castle of Heidelberg in the entire city. Despite all this, he was very surprised when we went to visit her was super quiet and virtually empty. Personally I liked it even more than the market-place.

  • The grain market is ideal for orientation and as a starting point to other attractions. Of course everyone there must make a photograph of himself with Castle in the background, always pretty much is going on. The entrance of the mountain railway is just 150 metres away, in 2 minutes, you reach Karlsplatz, the Neckar is close to the old bridge and pubs and restaurants are located in the adjacent main road. What you want. The grain market in itself is not idyllic. There are no welcoming seats, and at the passing traffic, it would be not so nice to sit there. Briefly allowing a rest, there are some benches and that is also sufficient.

  • 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.

Where to stay in Heidelberg

Most of the city's lodging is centralized near Altstadt, the Old Town. Here cafes, shops, and tourist sites line the cobbled streets. Many of the guesthouses here work hard to retain the area's historical feel.
