The town hall with its Gothic façade, already built before 1200 stone and at the end of the 14th century a permanent gable porch expanded, is of great importance for the Westphalian peace be stopped the thirty years war and the sectarian clashes. There are principal market between the late-Gothic Lambertikirche 1440 with the iron Baptist baskets on the tower and the town hall tower from the early 20th century, the gabled houses with a continuous ground floor Archway from the 13th and 14th century on both sides of the street ranks together. The market served as the seat of shopkeepers and merchants since the 15th century and was rebuilt after its destruction in the second world war. Today the past with the modern life of shopping here is a unique combination.
