"Heart of the City"

Marienplatz has been at the center of the city ever since it was founded by Henry the Lion in 1158. Named after the Marian Column of Mariensaule which was built in 1638 to mark the end of Swedish rule in Germany, the square is one of the most historically rich socio-cultural hubs of the city. Serving as a bustling marketplace in its early days, the square retained its position as the city's social core even after the market was moved. Dappled with monuments, Marienplatz is thronged by tourists admiring the intricate 100 meter (300 feet) high Gothic facade of the magnificent New Town Hall and the fluorescent waters of the spectacular Fish Fountain. The Marian column forms the centerpiece of the square, embellished with a golden statue of Mother Mary perched on its top.
