Here we are at Franziskanerplatz near the Kälbernes Viertel in Graz. The Hungarian cattle and the meat benches have been gone for a long time, but the Franciscans are still there. Their monastery with church (right) was founded by the Minorites almost 800 years ago and they have always been very much appreciated. The small square (left) used to be called "in hell", but at some point, hopefully more appropriate, it became capon square. Because the inn there probably served quite a lot of these fattened roosters, which was equally appreciated.

So this place has been developed over many hundreds of years and is very busy especially during the Advent season. Chestnuts, punch and many sweets can be found here. Kids from Graz know that of course. And where there are children, Santa Claus is not far away at this time.
