Kornmarkt, Heidelberg

4.0
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. Arrange to visit Kornmarkt and other attractions in Heidelberg using our Heidelberg trip planner .

  • This is a cute little market square with charming architecture all around you! The cobblestone pedestrian area is too cute! You will really feel like you’re in old world Germany here.  more »
  • There are on the way from the main market to the Castle, on the grain market. The way is lined with beautiful houses and small shops. If one is then on the way towards the Castle, up the stairs, cross the square.

  • Castle is well visible from the coin market. When visiting Heidelberg bus passed in front of the square. Plaza Heidelberg Castle from the small square, especially without explanation but passed back to that beautiful so stop and took a picture. In the center of the square is the statue of the Madonna in 1718 was made by Peter van den Branden. Are you getting rid of snakes.
