It is pleasant to stroll through the old town which has been beautifully restored and maintained. Although it is fairly compact there are many cafés both inside and out.

this is a quite small old town but to wander through the streets and back alleys has something special,it sort of takes you back in time and it's nice to sit and have a drink on the Domplatz and watch the world go by.
