This triangular square has a misleading name, for there has never been a market here, let alone one that sells geese. In the Middle Ages, it served as a traffic junction. After being rebuilt in the 1980s, it became a new focal point for the city centre. Seven streets lead in its direction, and it encompasses three shopping areas. Neo-classical houses and buildings in the style of the Kontorhäuser line the square, which has a bust of Lessing on it. The Ufa-Palast, once Europe's largest cinema, lies just to the North. In winter, there is a nice Christmas market on Gänsemarkt.
