This place can be considered the very heart of the city. It is the meeting point par excellence. In the center stands the Jubiläumssäule, a 5 meter memorial column erected in 1841 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of King Wilhelm I (William I). At the eastern end is the impressive building of the New Palace, the former residence of the kings of Württemberg. On sunny days the square is full of people taking advantage of the sun, meeting friends, playing with the kids etc. You can see people of all ages. It has a great friendly atmosphere. Very charming.
