We walked throughout the market place and enjoyed the architectural wonders, churches-the biggest mosaic in the world (in 1 church) and lunch at Hansburger on the square. Very good food and reasonable. Friendly people and several street musicians performing around.

Although we did not enter the City Hall, just seeing it from the outside is amazing. Just outside the City Hall is a beautiful fountain and many local people enjoying pastries & coffee.

I was here on a rainy afternoon, and the square around the Rathaus was well kept and clean. The building was beautiful, and the guides were able to help me understand what and why the building I was waling through existed.

We saw the Karl Charlemagne exhibition and it was very interesting and informative. Very good value as our tickets gave us entry to three exhibitions.

This was the outstanding pat of the Charlemagne 2014 exhibitions. Fluidly structured so you didn't get stuck in a queue and with some breathtaking AV effects that really made the exhibits come alive.

The building is amazing. The evident gothic style of it, makes it very impressive. The building is in a big square with places where someone can also sit to eat something.
