The old town of Günzburg and the market place
The meeting place for guests and Günzburger, today as in the past, when the postal route Vienna – Paris crossed the market place. On the 250 meters up to the Lower Gate the pulse beat can be clearly felt. Especially in the summer months the square has a magical attraction: then it turns into the longest street café in Swabia and the old town becomes an open-air stage during the summer of culture at the most diverse events. Since 1395, one of the oldest weekly markets in the region has been held here every Tuesday. The market is still of great importance for Günzburger and many guests from near and far.
