We were searching for a library when we found this. It is a nice place to take a few photos or drink a tea but that's it I think. The arhitecture is nice but not spectacular. We found also to statues with scenes from Faust

This historic building has lots of shops and places to have coffee and a bite. It has a restaurant featuring a statue of Faust outside the entrance to Auberach's Keller. Interesting old place.

The various passages give one an excellent understanding of the changing nature of commerce over the centuries as people moved from selling individual goods to having models which people purchased from. Much smaller venues for the later practice.
