As you enter the midieval market area you come upon Rathausplatz and its rose colored old town hall. It has a neat clock in the Renaissance facade with colorful figures marching at the hour. Great photo op especially if you catch the sunlight just right---the clock sparkles when this occurs.

We arrived late afternoon, so only viewed the town hall from the exterior, but it was lovely to watch the figures move when the clock struck the hour.

Walking around the town square was great. The town just feels German. There;s no need to rush or hurry. You are here to take in the atmosphere and relax. The entire area is pleasant to experience.

Charming old town hall, the new one is literally across the street. The clock tower is fabulous and a must see when the hour strikes. Good places to eat right around it

The most beautiful building in the Old Town of Esslingen and build in 1422 and finished in 1423.
A renaissance facade was added in 1586 and is fantastic!
