We spent a few hours here at the end of a day exploring northeastern Switzerland and enjoyed discovering the fairytale-like streets and alleyways. A very charming place and one of the prettiest in Germany.

Walk the cobbled streets of the old town & let your mind wander back centuries. Beautiful, clean & very well maintained old town. Stop for a coffee & just soak up the atmosphere or visit some or all of the many attractions including the museum & historic cathedral......

We stayed in central location to make strolling through old town easy and enjoyable. We even ate at a local favorite with the help of a waitress who could translate the menu so we could order local fare

The pedestrian precinct has a wide choice of reasonably priced shops and... More

Some lovely old buildings and mostly in very good condition make this a town worth walking around. It's not large and is easy to navigate.
