Fascinating, clean, walkable, friendly, lots of well-preserved churches and historic sites. We were there Nov 26, 2018 and surprised that Christmas markets were open. Wonderful tradition. Mmm delicious Gluwein, fascinating crafts, local choir, skating rink... lots of fun!

A beautiful place. Still has old world charm and great places to eat and shop. Easy to get around and lots to see and do. So much variety. It would take several days to really see most of what it offers.
