Loved all the colors and how well preserved every building is. All buildings are colorful and include different styles including half timbered. It has 2 beautiful fountains. All very ornate and beautifully painted. Highly recommend it

Whether you know of the Hauptmarket or not you will surely cross its path. Situated along the tourist path through the city, this market square is a delight for photos, local goods, cafes and a Lindt chocolate store.
