Located by the Holy Spirit Church , the square is surrounded by nice restaurants and the tourist information office. It has a fountain in the middle, Hercules fountain. It has souvenirs shops.

The Marktplatz is next to the Heiliggeistkirche and the Rathaus (these have their own tripadvisor entries), and it hosts the weekly market on Saturday mornings, so it is the traditional center of the old city. It's only a couple of blocks from the Alte Bruecke...More

Besides the nice town hall you will also find a lot of restaurants here with many tables outside to enjoy the summer.

Located next to the church and the town hall, the market square is lined with restaurants, cafes and souvenir shops. It is a favorite meeting place for tour groups. Great for shopping but nothing special otherwise.

Nice enough market square, but no real distinguishing features from any other we have seen. Decent number of shops and good array of food plus tourist places. Would not make this a highlight

When you arrive by train at HBF, you can walk right to the beginning to the Marketplatz street and take it all the way to the castle. Can be completed in about a full 5 hour day with shopping, streetside lunch, castle, University, Alte Brucke,...More

Bring your camera, grab a refreshment (bier, wine, coffee, ice cream) and take photos. There is free wifi in the area, but spend less time on it because you should be enjoying the location. If you are here in winter, the Christmas market stands are...More

I recommend visit this Marktplatz after Heidelberg Castle. This is a good place for lunch or afternoon snack as it has many good cafes and restaurants. There are also many shops, but they closed on Sunday. So if you want to shop for any souvenirs,...More
