Wonderful town square, set up with Christmas markets. All sorts of booths, from food to hand crafted items. A must see area during the winter months. Lots to see, smell and hear.

At the moment, the area is full of Christmas market stands selling all sorts! Plenty of food and drink as well, so a really nice experience. Bought quite a few unusual items for stockings...

The christmas markets are already open. lots of stalls with hot fruit punch, bratwurst, and crepes. Wonderful fairy lights everywhere and generally a great atmosphere. Theres also shops with trinkets and warm clothing if you didn't come prepared.

Well, a nice place like there are many in other cities. Place was hectic, bustling and lots of traffic. From this place are many small alleys leading into the old town - worth a visit.

As far as we know the ships dock close to the Hauptplatz. It is a few minutes walk from the docking area to the Hauptplatz. Leave the ship and turn right - you should see the Hauptplatz after a short walk.
