  • It is on the way to the 500.Geburtstag... and it is ansehenswert, as it dominates the spacious market with also other remarkable facades. With a little luck you got an outdoor space in one of the gastronomic offers during nice weather after the inevitable photo op with the historic building substance and can production driving on the square as well as the view on the old town hall to work on leave then.

  • I loved this museum that I stayed there 3 h 30. Everything is perfectly explained, and the explanations are bilingual German/English. The upper floor dedicated to modern times is tremendously highlighted. A provision extremely bold and original. To tell the truth we have all want to get out of this museum.

  • If you have opportunity, examine the market with the old town hall also during the night! On the day hide indoors and outdoors many nice shops etc.
