The winding and steep streets of Old Marburg come together on the small Market Square. One of the city symbols - the Town Hall of the XVI century- is here. The three-storey building of the Town Hall with the statue St. Elizabeth at the entrance appeared in Marburg in 1512. Later the Town Hall was topped with an expansion gable roof and an astronomical clock.
A rooster looks out of the window above the dial every hour flapping its wings. A trumpeter takes on life on the left and a figure with an hourglass - on the right. This scene attracts dozens of curious people to the Market Square. Many tourists take places at the tables of street restaurants with views of the Town Hall and the half-timbered houses and enjoy a little performance with a refreshing cider. In winter, the traditional Christmas market opens here, where you can enjoy hot mulled wine with special festive cookies called Haddekuche.
