Its an up hill walk, and towers and steps to climb, if you take it slow, its a perfect day to wonder and lose yourself.

Probably the best way to see the Old Town in all its glory. Walk up to the old ramparts and you will be rewarded with beautiful views of the town and the lake.

The medieval fortified towers are different from those in Asia (e.g., the towers in the Great Wall of China). I have seen over 20 fortified towers in German and Switzerland. Some are rectangular, some are round in shape, however, most of them are not open...More
