Fantastic 14th century clock and bells. €7.00 entree great value. Audio commentary in different languages. Well worth a visit. Great views from the top of the bell tower. Small spiral staircase to get up in the tower may not be suitable for poor mobility.

Lots of little shops along the way for shopping or browsing. The old "Nordic" architecture of the city is warm and welcoming.
