Kornmarkt, Heidelberg

3.8
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 .

  • As per the title, the Kornmarkt is another square ringed with buildings oozing character. As with other similar locations in Heidelberg, you'll be impressed with this little gem  more »
  • It is inspiration and certainly is a square, but not consciously. We aim here especially around there is nothing for the people was with a different feeling.

  • 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.

  • 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.
