Only a 5 minute walk from the Residenz and you are in one of the largest market squares, in Germany. Unfortunately it was Easter Sunday, so basically most shops were closed,, but one can imagine how busy it would be on a shopping day, with a large amount of restaurants, banks and numerous shops, all open for business.

Bustling place full of stalls but plenty of room to move around. Lots of stalls with the usual range of touristy goods but there is also plenty of food options and it is a nice place to have lunch.

Wurzburg is just a great city and their market square shows this. Lovely buildings and a church surround this big open area. Everyday people are buying produce and cheese cake, or just sitting outside. No fancy name shops, as it's not very touristic. It's very clean, the wine is good, and the people are wonderful.

Great snacks here! Usual market stuff and usual crowds, but altogether a pleasant diversion. An hour here is quite sufficient.

Quite large and surrounded by many beautiful buildings there was actually a street fair going on the day we were there which actually added to the enjoyment.

The Christmas Market is always fun, plenty of food and drinks and many local arts and crafts to be bought. The Market is also fun during other months !

Just like most major cities in Europe the Market Square is a fun place to sit and eat or people watch. We did both and got some sun too!!

During my visit, there was nothing on the square as the market was closed. The surrounding area, consisted of St Mary's chapel and other historical buildings, was a nice place to take photos.

Do not walk through the Market Square without researching the surrounding builds and their history. To hear of the history of this beautiful 'Old Library' building and its restoration is fabulous.

I have always loved Wurzburg and the Christmas market had food drink and lots decorations to buy it was wonderful. Try to see this city when the market is not going on also I think You will enjoy the whole feel of the city center.
