Took the trolley down to see the sights. Live bands playing 2 nights in a row. Right next to the Carew building. Go to the top well worth the price. Enjoy

If you ever watched this show in the 1970's you've seen this fountain. It is nicer in person, and worth a few pictures if you're nearby.

Suprised by this gem! Don't miss this spectacular public art. Rivals Bethesda Fountain in Central Park, NYC.

Was a great park for the kids to run around and play. They can run through the fountains and play in the water a great time.

Always seems to be something going on at fountain square. And if not grab a drink at one of the many restaurants and do some people watching. Never a dull day on the square.

Great music. Liquor can be purchased in the square but not taken out. Lots of people having a good time. Few homeless and some beggars. Plus a few shady characters. Overall it's ok. Wouldn't stay out to late however.

Fountain Square is a great spot for free entertainment and people watching in downtown Cincinnati. The fountain is beautiful and a symbol of Downtown Cincinnati.

I believe that the German market that you are reference is 'Findlay Market' which is on the northwest side of downtown. I think that it is only open during daytime hours. It is better and livelier during warmer months
