Lemgo market place


Historic town centre with impressive buildings

In the middle of Lemgo’s old town is the market square with numerous remarkable buildings. In addition to the historic town hall, which is considered a monument from the Gothic and Renaissance eras and is particularly notable for the stone carvings on the apothecary’s oriel and the council arbour, the St. Nikolai church, the council scales and the Asemissen house also dominate the picture. On the west side of Lemgo’s market square, several modern houses were built in 1976 that blend harmoniously into the ensemble. As part of the restoration of the market square buildings, the historic Ballhaus and Zeughaus buildings were rebuilt and the Ratskeller was also renovated. The building of the old savings bank, on the other hand, was demolished.
