Right on the market, plenty of places to eat. It is right on the river across from a nice green space good to picnic. The green is the bachelor and bachelorette place to go on Friday night which makes a person interesting people watching.

A beautiful church that is as worth visiting as the Dom. It is set in a very pretty area near the Rhine. Definitely worth visiting and photographing.
