Florian Square and the Upper Town: Bad Reichenhall’s historic old town
Bad Reichenhall’s Florian Square with its gable-topped houses and typically alpine flair has retained its originality and romantic setting. This square, along with the Sebastian quarter and the medieval fortification wall from the 13th c, forms the oldest part of the Alpine Town. These were the only houses spared in the 1834 city fire which is why the square has preserved its characteristic old Bavarian village appearance. Formerly the workshops of coopers, coppersmiths and dyers could be found here. Today artists, artisans, tailors and wreath-makers welcome visitors and customers at their workshops and stores. Spending leisure time at one of the neighborhood’s cafés you can still feel the spirit of the past here.
