One of the city's busiest squares, Marktplatz Lörrach consists of the old market square and new marketplace. The old one is the heart of the downtown area and features many historic structures as well as a sculpture trail. These two scenic marketplaces are linked by a huge pedestrian road. In the new marketplace you will find a huge fountain. It is the site of the town's weekly market. Marktplatz is dotted with many lovely cafes and is the base of the annual Stimmen festival.
