A marketplace

A marketplace remains the centre of the old Duesseldorf despite not being the busiest part of the city. With time the principal activities have moved to the Royal Alley, while the Old Town with the main square became rather secluded, in a striking contradiction to the medieval period. 

The centre of the square is graced by the equestrian statue of the Elector Johann Wilhelm. Curiously, the statue had been unveiled still in Elector's lifetime. Moreover, he wanted to see himself in bronze. The work of the Flemish artist de Grupello produced such a wonderful effect on the Elector that he decided to present a sculptor with a house in the Marketplace. 

The old Town Hall also towers above the city here. The five-storey red brick building is over 400 years. All the municipal services of Duesseldorf cannot be jammed into a medieval edifice, however the Uber-Burgemeister does work in the old Town Hall.  

In winter, not long before Christmas, the Marketplace comes alive. Christmas market starts working, the skating rink attracts visitors who also buy Christmas trees and souvenirs and drink hot mulled wine...
