One of the very few antique castle but still populated, with beautiful houses, restaurants and motels. Very clean, well organized. Is like traveling a bit into the past. Great for photography, especially during the night when is well illuminated.

Magnificent view from the tower in the center. The whole historic center reminds a lot of Germany. Even some signs are in German.
