Market Square

Marktplatz©Rüdiger Dunker

Since Darmstadt was granted its town charter in 1330, weekly markets and annual funfairs have been held in the market square (Marktplatz). The fountain was, until the sixteenth century, the only public water supply in the town. To the south of the square stands the renaissance style Alte Rathaus (old town hall), home today to the registry office, and the Ratskeller with its own private brewery.
