Sigmaringen Things to Do: 8 reviews and 22 photos
I came across the lovely Town Square as I was walking around Sigmaringen.. It was quite busy with people setting up stalls for a market.
As the Town is very old, there are many nice buildings here of all different styles, and many with Frescoes. The Town Hall is in the square and on the corner of the building were statues. The Fountain in front of the Town Hall was built in 1826, and is of is Count Johann of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen.
The Town Square in the 1800's and earlier, was not the place a young Woman who had pre-maritial sex wanted to be. If she became pregnant, she was brought to the Town Square and put in stocks and made to wear "mocking Crown's of Straw," or was tied to a "Post of Shame!" - How times have changed!
Address: Town Square, Sigmaringen
