This is a rather plain disappointing obelisk however it sits in a very good market place where there is also the large Marien Chapel.

This is a rather plain obelisk, sitting in the markt platz amid the stalls, near the Marienkappelle and the Falkenhaus and information center. Just a thing to see as you walk around the plaza.

If you have seen any of the Obelisks' in Rome and the ornate plinths and carvings that surround them and are on them, this will be a little disappointing. A good marker to get into the market place, but nothing to write home about.

This is an obelisk in the middle of the Marktplatz. There are some carvings on it, but nothing outstanding.

The square with some nice buildings and monuments around. Nice for a stop but I found the old bridge more attracitive.

The marketplatz had a health fair on the day when we arrived. Very busy, yet still very beautiful. Recommend visiting and enjoying a vibrant downtown.

Honestly, this obelisk fades into the background with everything going on in Marktplatz. This is a large pedestrian market area right in front of Marienkapelle. On a nice day, there are plenty of vendors to set up tents and sell food, local products, and souvenirs....More
