Welcome to the heart of old town
Historical market square
The historical market square is the nexus of Wertheim’s old town. It is surrounded by richly adorned half-timbered heritage buildings that are beautifully preserved and in some cases date back to the 16th century. Constructed in 1520, house number 6 is one of Franconia’s oldest and probably narrowest buildings. It’s worth taking a closer look: the imaginative, exquisite facade is adorned with the region’s typical gargoyles depicting grotesque faces and animal shapes that were intended to ward off evil and ensure that the inhabitants slept safely and soundly at night.
The weekly Green Market is held on the market square every Saturday morning. It features regular theme days and culinary delicacies from the region.
