This is the place to: hangout and people watch; grab a frankfurt mit senf and semmel at one of the würstlstands; enjoy the building facades that survived world war 2; and be amazed at how noone seems to get hit by a strassenbahn.

Enjoy shopping and people watching in this stately relaxed location. Many quaint streets with interesting boutiques & art stores tucked off the main routes. Many well know stores on the main streets.

Beautiful square with lots of photo-op moments just one snap away. The colours make the experience 10x better, so if you're photography-friendly make sure you don't leave the house without your camera. You may be lucky enough to find some events going on, like food...More
