The Fischmarkt is the main square of Erfurt. It is home to the Rathaus primarily and to many of the most beautiful and ornate houses in the city. These include "Zum roten Ochsen" (1562) now an art gallery (Kunsthalle), "Zum Breiten Herd (1584) popular for its plaques depicting the five senses and its next door neighbour the Gildehaus. It is also where you will find the so called "Roland" statue which is sometimes referred to as "Mann auf der Saule" or "the man on the column". Of course there are many wonderful eateries where good food, beer and people watching are the main activities.

Directions: Find the Rathaus and you're there.
