“It's a statue...not an attraction”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Like above - it's a statue and not really an attraction. There isn't really anything wrong with it, but you can do it in less than a minute...or give it a miss!

“posing with Adolf”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

As my title suggests, the best thing about this statue is taking photos doing the same pose. BUT it is situated in a very nice area close to the city center, we saw markets open there on some of the days, it's not far from the river...if you are walking your way through the city, then you will see it a few times without planning.

“City Hall Square”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Possibly the most romantic and historical corner in the entire city. Not really a place to visit, but a place to walk by as your investigating the city. The big City Hall building is not only the center of the city government, but it is the place where people go to get married with a civil ceremony. Within immediate walking distance from the square you can discover: a great vegetarian restaurant, the buildings from the Swedish East Indian Company which have been turned into a museum, the Masonic Lodge & Museum (possibly open to "qualified "visitors), the dedicated building Antiquehalle (shopping center for antiques), and of course you're in the middle of the central shopping district.
