Large square in town where actually a market is held on Monday through Saturday. Largely pedestrians only. Nice cafes on the northern side to sit outside and watch people.

Right in front of the Scholssgarten and a block away from the Hauptbahnhof. Probably the busiest and most beautiful part of Erlangen.

Very nice place and definitely worthy a visit. There is a fair every Saturday morning and it hosts also the biggest Weihnachtsmarkt of Erlangen. From here you can reach most of the shopping possibilities in the town, including the Hauptstraße and the Arcaden Mall.
