  • The museum in the old railway station with its locomotives in the open-air area is worth a visit. The exhibits on display are a beautiful photo motif.

  • Fire fans will be the scene, take a walk to take pictures, the station atmosphere is a bit, some people are inside, the fire also seems to be still in the scene, like an ancient.
