Stunning place. Buzzing and full of life. Do the Christmas markets it’s amazing. Loads to do and see and food and drink to suit all tastes. So clean, so safe and relaxed. Don’t stop on the square but just off it.

Beautiful old square with lots of coffee shops and restaurants. At Christmas this place looks beautiful and holds a decent sized Christmas market. It has many stalls including food, drinks and gifts. Worth a visit to the market. Particularly at this time of year.
