  • You want FUN? Here you are right, just on the weekend the bear dances here. Above all the breweries are our favorites here is always something going on and if not can MAN/WOMAN sitting outside and great people watching and to enjoy one of the best beers of the world. It's the longest bar in the world.

  • Connecting train from the airport to half an hour. The old town is all Christmas. But there are a lot of types is limited. Small shops and shops selling food. Most gadgets are named after Christmas and seasonal drinks and food (sauteed with mulled wine, roasted chestnuts, mushrooms, etc.). Still from the evening market in the early evening the atmosphere is everywhere an indescribable sense of Christmas is fun.
