An idyllic market square, a famous town hall - in Melsungen, the historic half-timbered town on the Fulda with its over 1000 year history, there is much to discover: the Landgrave Castle, the Gothic-Romanesque town church, medieval towers, remains of the town wall, old fountains, flower-decorated half-timbered alleys, richly decorated beams, historical inscriptions and carvings. In the romantic old town, more than 400 lovingly restored half-timbered houses form a harmonious ensemble. In the centre stands the historical, three-storey town hall where the Melsungen symbol figure, the Bartenwetzer, appears from the central tower daily at 12 noon and 6 pm.
