It was a lovely walk along the towers away from the crowded old town. The good weather and peaceful setting added to the romance. The tower offers a brilliant view of the lake as well.

We found this one totally by accident glad we did. You get great views of the city from the towers you can actually go in. One of them you actually get to see the inner workings of the clock itself.

The towers are easy to find, just outside the city. Nice walk, great views. A must see and do that is FREE. Recommend good walking shoes and water.
