Very interesting old world city center. Don't miss the glockenspiel playing. Try and take a handsome cab (horse drawn carriage) ride thru the city.

It is a very attractive place to visit. With its cobbled streets and old buildings it has the charm of the old times gone by. Yet it is modern and cosmopolitan. We had a good time here. Just wish we get to spend more time...More
