Probably there is nothing special about this place, but you pas through this market if you walk from the train station to the centre. It is a nice place, with those two important writers of Germany in the middle, holding hands. :)

These two famous statues of Goethe and Schiller, situated in the center of the city, is for sure the passage that you won’t miss. Just take your time to admire these 2 historical figures before visiting the nearby museums or the shopping center.
