  • At 20:00 h in the middle of Christmas had just lit the bar from the bottom of the square, we thought that the Cathedral estaiia surrounded by a lively Christmas market as in other cities a December 8, nor a sad light, lonely and dark square that disappointed lot, returned the next day to visit the Cathedral on 12 o'clock and what was in the plaza was packed with stalls of vegetable market crappy. A pity that you could not enjoy the Christmas atmosphere that would look much more. The Christmas market was alone in the Town Hall Square, in contrast to other German cities than in each square there are markets and lots of entertainment this square was completely soulless.

  • Beautiful place, fully paved, very lively, with superb cathedral, fine shops, terraces to enjoy a good German beer, beautiful gothic houses, pretty fountain with statue, a must visit place.

  • Not just another munsterplatz. This place speaks to you. Good energy. Even though it's 95 percent post war construction (except Munster) it's still cool
