So worth a walk around. Steeped in historic character and architecture. Walking distance to lots of places to eat and drink and also lots of small shops near by. Don't forget to take the camera.

This is a beautiful city centre dominated by the restored (originally 14th century) Hanseatic building known as the House of Blackheads. There are lots of cafes and tourist shops in the vicinity and its an area that is well worth strolling around.
