If you are interested in the Reformation, a must see. The park itself is great for kids (playground and giant chess pieces) in summer and in winter there is often a skating rink

Take the tram and visit it if you haven't gone before. It's in a small park as well which is worth a look. The flee market isn't far from here if you're there on certain days (a few stops from there).
