Bike Touring Highlight
The Breite Straße is located in the center of the old town island and is today mainly as a pedestrian area of importance. It was still known in 1284 under its Latin name Platea lata. The Breite Straße was probably already in the course of the first city designs from the late 12th century provided as part of the north-south connection system in today's Old Town.The southern end of the Breite Straße forms the Kohlmark. From there, to the north, you pass through the pedestrian zone Rathaus and Kanzleigebäude. Behind the chancellery, Breite Straße crosses the Mengstraße, known for the Buddenbrookhaus and the Mann family. Here is the fountain "Golden Sod", which was added in 1991 by Johannes Michler at the site of a former drinking water well. The area of the pedestrian zone with its many shops and cafes ends at the intersection to Beckergrube. Finally, in the section of the Breite Straße which has been approved for road traffic, there are the Schiffergesellschaft and the Jacobikirche. At the church the Breite Straße merges into the Koberg and later into the Große Burgstraße.
