Marktplatz (Market Square)

Marktplatz (Market Square) Review

Two statues are the centerpiece here: an 1821 statue of Luther by Johann Gottfried Schadow, designer of the quadriga and Victory atop Berlin's Brandenburg Gate, and an 1866 statue of Melanchthon by Frederick Drake. Gabled Renaissance houses containing shops line part of the square.

Rathaus. The handsome, white High Renaissance town hall forms the backdrop for the Marktplatz's two statues. Markt 26, D–06886. 03491/421–720. Daily 10–5.
