This could be an oasis of peace in the city centre, but slightly spoilt by the close surroundings, especially a certain large chain coffee shop which looked quite run down

Beautiful all year around whether it is in Winter with its Christmas market or Summer with the masses of people covering every space space to sit. Lovely space to take a break in either from work or the hustle and bustle of the shops.

It changes it appearance around Christmas time with its Christmas Markets with its festive atmosphere, and near by are the Winter Gardens... More

While passing by the Town Hall, you can stop and have a break here - nice fountains and not a bad place for an afternoon snack or a coffee - many nearby shops to buy from. The garden is very small, don't expect the need of "touring" it.
