The town survived WWII with little damage. The walled city is typical German - beautiful and waiting to be photographed. Take in the entire city wall if you visit.

I lost count of the number of gates into and out of this walled town. All of them slightly different and all with their own unique style. Fascinating to see so many double gates as they obviously expanded the town as it grew in stature.
