Marktplatz, Bonn

Marktplatz, Bonn

Built in the 11th century, Marktplatz has been the center of daily trade in Bonn ever since. Dominating the busy square is the Marktfontaine, also known as the Obelisk, standing in the center. The market square also houses a number of historic buildings, including the Baroque-style city hall and the famous Em Höttche restaurant, established in 1389, which went down in history as the place where Elector Gebhard Truchsess of Waldburg celebrated wedding with Agnes Gräfin von Mansfeld on 2 February 1583 which ultimately led to the outbreak of the so-called "Cologne War".
