The egg market forms the heart of the old town (this is the medieval new town). It is the most beautiful historical building ensemble in the city. The square served as a market place for many centuries. The Eiermarkt is lined by half-timbered houses from the baroque period and by the Nikolauskirche (13th century). In the middle of the square is a sculpture of the master butcher Michel Mort, who saved freedom and lives in the battle of Sprendlingen in 1279 against the troops of the Archbishop of Mainz. The sculpture by Stanislaus Cauer from the end of the 19th century is one of many works of art by the Cauer family of sculptors that can be found in squares and in the museum.
