  • This old town hall naturally enjoys a prominent site in the heart of the medieval city. Interesting historically and it remains a meeting place in its square, which is a great place to take a break...  more »
  • The square in front of the town hall is a nice place to hang out. It's right on the river bank and close to the pipe organ church and old town. You can grab a beer and a table and watch the world go.....  more »
