Place des Tripiers (Tripiers Square)

Place des Tripiers was built in 1957 following American air bombings during the Second World War, on the site of rue de Pied de Bœuf and rue des Tripiers. The square lies in a trading and commercial district that has been in operation since the Middle Ages. On the square, a large barrel and seven vines are a symbol of Strasbourg’s vineyard, the Couronne d’Or, and the grape varieties grown in Alsace. The bronze statue is a tribute to Reimbold Liebenzeller, a knight who led the Strasbourg troops to victory against Bishop Walter de Geroldseck, the city’s sovereign, on the Hausbergen hills on 8 March 1262. After defeating the episcopal army, Strasbourg declared itself a free republic1.
