    The historic market square is a highlight of Glückstadt. Here you can explore the city in a star shape. There are many nice and very good restaurants around the market. Tuesday and Friday is the weekly market.

    Right on the market is one of the best restaurants in town, The Little Henry. If you would like to eat fish, especially matjes, is here optimally reserved. But all other dishes are really top class here.

    The stately cobblestone square is the focal point of the site, which was planned on paper in the early 17th century.
    Historic houses with well-tended facades frame the market square, including the town hall with the red brick front to the north and the town church from 1621 diagonally opposite. Fortuna, the goddess of luck, who adorns the town's coat of arms in light clothing, also adorns the narrow dome of the church. At the entrance you can see a storm surge mark from October 7, 1756 when 200 people lost their lives in a dike breach. On the south side, the Fleth borders the market square, a watercourse on which goods were once transported. Most of the historic city center is a listed building. Many buildings date from the time the city was founded and were built in the Renaissance style.
    The special thing about the ground plan of the place can best be seen from the air or on the city map: Twelve so-called radial streets run straight from all directions towards the market square and structure the old town. Cross connections at the respective end points result in a hexagonal floor plan that is still visible today. In this way Glückstadt differs significantly from the usual maze of alleys in medieval towns.ndr.de/ratgeber/reise/binnenland_elbe/Glueckstadt-Elbstaedtchen-der-Fortuna-,glueckstadt10.html

    From the center of the market you can see the fan of the seven radial streets, three pseudoradial streets and the two streets that affect the market. The market square once served the soldiers as a parade and parade ground. With the royal privilege of 1624, the Glückstadt butter market (weekly market) still takes place every Tuesday and Friday.glueckstadt-tourismus.de/stadtrundgang-auf-den-spuren-eines-koeniglichen-traums

    From the layout of the city alone, it simply has to be the focus here.

    The market square forms the center of the city. The town hall and the town church are also located here. There are seven streets in each direction from here.
