This is a very nice place for photography due to the surrounding historical buildings and cafes. It is fun walking around here looking at the buildings and then having a break at one of the cafes.

mandatory Not a must, as the buildings are more beautiful when seen from downstairs, but the visit is not bad.

Surrounded by mostly very old buildings ,lies the market square. The old town hall looks over the square with its old cobbled charm. In the middle of the square there is a patterned area where executions took place,apparently it's bad luck to walk over it!!!
