The market place in Mayen has always been a market. Since today, you can find the weekly market every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday here. The large market, which is held every three months, is very popular and the fun fair "Lukasmarkt" in October, which is the largest fair in the northern of Rhineland-Palatinate.
In the middle of the market place is a market fountain, which was built in 1812 by Michael von Alken. The fountain has three floors. The upper floor stands for the people, the middle for large lifestock and the bottom floor stands for the small lifestock.
