You can enter St. Michael's tower for birds eye view of the city. The vicinity has plenty of bakeries to enjoy a cup of coffee and cake.

Interesting museum on all the small levels on the way up the tower. Spectacular views from the top, especially as the roofs were half covered with frost or snow .
