The Arcades and Market place
Built in the beginning of the 19th century, these houses (1820 for the arcades) form a harmonious whole. The covered wheat and flour market was once located on the opposite side of the square. Built in 1770, it was replaced by the post office in 1911.
The present day “New Market” held on this location since 1776, replaced the old cemetery, which was relocated further west.
The market square has remained the heart and life of the city ever since, especially on market days: Tuesday, Friday and Sunday mornings.
The fountain was incorporated in the building of the new square with underground car park in 2006.
