I went there for the Christmas fairs and it was just wonderful! Delicious punsch and mulled wine with waffles, baked potatoes and anything that gets you in the mood for Christmas

The Hauptplatz and Herrengasse are just beautiful, along with the fantastic building the Rathaus which stands in its "full glory". I spend a lot of time around this area at the Wurstel Stands eating the lovely sausages and of course having ocal Gosser beer. Spend time looking at the buildings which are beautiful.

I'm not sure of the history of the city or this square, but it had some fantastic architecture. Tons of street cars came into the square so it's a main transport hub.

The Hauptplatz was filled with quality Christmas markets and so was atmospheric. The giant Christmas tree, the Rathaus lighting and the surrounding decorated streets were most impressive. Trams stop right here.

a large square surrounded by lovely buildings, take time to enjoy the flair. Above the square you can see the Clocktower.

The square is really nice, full of nice restaurants and stores in the surrounding. Check if there is any event up to come there, they are usually really nice and for free. :D
