Medium size square but still manage to give a feeling of space. The seeing itself is quickly done but goes well with a visit of the city. During winter, it is where the Christmas Market takes place. The occasion gives a very good atmosphere.

It is situated just in the middle of the town. It is near the main commercial area and right next to some really good restaurants. It has free WiFi and sometimes cute concerts happen to be going on there.
