“Pubs and Grub no matter what you love”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

An area with a lovely atmosphere that is vibrant and busy. Plenty of pubs in the area that caters to all tastes. There was this one bar (which names escapes me) as soon as we entered the building and moved towards a table the barman was straight down with a bar, service you can't beat. During the day there is a market at the top of the street where you can buy a wide range of local products including food. Highly recommend it as a destination for lunch.

“people watching”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

very warm day when we went down. sat on river front , lots of umbrellas and great service in all the bars. everyone strolling along the esplanade and made for great people watching not to forget the brown beer, every bar had their own kind and it was great tasting all the different ones. a very enjoyable day at the river and lots of great stalls to pick your meals from.

“Must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

Great little shops to browse. Amazing cafes and bakeries. Something for everyone's budget. The tourist information centre is bang in the middle of the old town and the staff are very friendly. Free map is a must!!

A really nice feeling wandering around the cobbled streets and across the squares. The waterfront at the old town is also really nice as you get to see a lot of the Rhine with the old buildings as a nice backdrop.

“Spoilt a little by the roadworks, but still a good experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

The range of bars and restaurants is amazing. Make sure you have a glass of Alt from all 5 breweries. They are relaying the main road which spoils the look of the place. We took the walking tour for €10 each (3pm daily). The guide had to speak in German and English which did slow things down, but she knew her stuff.
