"Fischmarkt - Treffpunkt am Stelzenfisch
Der Fischmarkt ist heute eine baumbestandene Oase in der Altstadt.
Nach der gelungenen Stadtsanierung wurde 1982 auch der Platz – durch die Errichtung eines Brunnens – aufgewertet. Die Plastik des Stelzenfischs schuf der Landauer Künstler Stefan Forler. Sie erinnert an den Berufsstand der Fischer, der heute in der Domstadt zwar ausgestorben ist, aber hier jahrhundertelang beheimatet war.
Der Fischmarkt, als „forum piscium“ bereits 1290 erwähnt, zog sich am Speyerbach entlang. Im Spätmittelalter befand sich hier der Fisch- und Holzmarkt. Auf dem ausgedehnten Holzhof stapelten sowohl die einheimische Hasenpfühlerzunft wie auch die auswärtigen Schiffer ihr Holz.

"Fish market - meeting stilts fish
The fish market is today a tree across the oasis in the town.
After the successful Stadtsanierung 1982 was also the place - through the establishment of a fountain - aufgewertet. The plastic of Stelzenfischs created the Landauer artist Stefan Forler. She recalls the professional fishermen who today in the cathedral is indeed extinct, but their home was jahrhundertelang.
The fish market, as "forum piscium" already mentioned 1290, withdrew in Speyerbach along. In the late middle ages was here the fish and timber market. In the vast lumberyard piled Hasenpfühlerzunft both the domestic as well as foreign Schiffer their timber."
