In the centre of Wągrowiec tourists can admire the beautifully revitalized Market Square in 2009 where tenement houses have regained their former glory. Among them, a magnificent façade of the pre-war "Metropol" hotel attracts particular attention. The unique atmosphere of the Market Square is created by a fountain dancing to the music with lighting effects (the only such attraction in the region), a sundial, the wind rose and cafes. The "Dancing fountain" shows take place daily at noon and after dark from spring to autumn. The repertoire includes a total of 10 pieces randomly changed during the shows. In winter, the fountain is covered by a shimmering dome, which, together with Christmas decorations and illuminated buildings, creates a charming atmosphere of this place. The Market Square is also a place of numerous cultural, social and artistic events.
