  • This is where all the action is. Located close to the church, this is a must visit during christmas. 
  • It is obligatory to visit. Pure is pedestrian. It has many places to eat that are filled quickly by tourists. It is advisable to eat at times different than normal. That square German seeking one has the typical architecture

  • 一個上午逛遍了整個山上城堡,當飢腸轆轆五臟廟大唱空城計的時候,山下的市集廣場就是補充糧食養足氣力的最佳地方。市集廣場附近有很多餐廳販賣各種美食,也有禮品店、購物街,非常熱鬧!

  • Any time of the year this place offers good eats. beautiful scenery and lovely people. this is a university city and hub for artist. this city never industrialized and you can tell from it's charm. little hidden gems are to be found everywhere. food and shopping galore. insider tip go see Mark Twains apartment still in it's original condition and visit the anthropological museum and see the oldest human fossil in Europe. Not to mention all of the memorials to the various mastermind that congregated here. very touristy all year round but is also a hot spot for locals.
  • This was definitely a place. The name did not lie. Unless you thought the German word "platz" meant something more like "barnacle" in which case the name did lie. I saw no barnacles in this place.
  • Charming town square. Many of the most important sites are within walking distance.

  • Historical Place. Authentic old German. Very nice to walk around the small ways between the old german houses.
