  • We were there a Friday night. It was really an experience out of the ordinary, in a positive sense:) Idea we went out from the train station met many hundreds of residents who had a picnic on the lawn. It looked very nice, got the urge to be with to have a picnic with them: D The old town is a city worth experiencing. Many fine older buildings in the old building style and museumer where we took the train there, only it was an experience for themselves;)
