A great small 'museum' to show how people used to live. We enjoyed touring this small house (small admission fee) and look at artifacts from a former life.

We stumbled upon this one whilst walking along the wall besides it. You have got to admire how they have managed to keep all these fascinating buildings in excellent decorative order.

In a city of beautiful buildings, this is quite eye catching while walking the wall. Not exactly city centre like Das Plonlien, but a nice find along the way
