Old Market Square - the Cradle of Hanau

The Old Market Square was the center of the medieval town of Hanau. In the middle of the XVI century the Old Town Hall was built here. Its architectural style has mixed features of the early Renaissance and late Gothic. On top of that medieval masters used fragments of traditional timber framing in the design of the Town Hall. Today's Town Hall is a copy of a historic building, which is located within the German house of jewelers (Deutsche Goldschmiedehaus). There are exhibitions of gems and jewelry. /p>  

Opposite the old Town Hall in Hanau you can see the Fountain of Justice of the early XVII century. The slightly angular Gothic St. Mary’s Church (Mariae Namenkirche) is also here. It is not difficult to recognize it thanks to its wide gray roof and bell tower. The Romanesque church existed on this site back in the XIV century. However, Marienkirche was built here a hundred years later. Over time, they expanded the temple, decorated it with high tower and turned it into a tomb of the counts of Hanau.

 

Inside the church you should pay attention to the Gothic choir hall of the XV century with a unique ribbed decorated ceiling, which has been preserved in its original form. Another relic is a fragment of a grave-stone of the XV century depicting Countess Adriana von Nassau Dillenburg, wife of Count Philip I. The frescoes with some survived parts, such as the painted image of St. Lawrence, also have a historical value. In addition, the church is famous for its stunning stained glass windows and church bells. By the way, one of the bells was made in the XVIII century.
