Interesting old square with a beautiful church. We missed the Xmas market by a couple of days so I suggest you try and visit that as it looks to be really good.

Visited during Christmas markets. A very nice old town centre that was mostly rebuilt after ww2, retaining its charm and beauty. Very easy to walk through without getting lost.
