We were lucky to be staying at the Hotel Markusturm and had the chance to walk past it many times and take numerous pictures of this pretty place. It is quite fairy tale like staying in this hotel. If you get the chance, stay here!

Yet another fantastic chance to see glorious buildings from the middle ages. The majority of the old town is a picture perfect opportunity. Which ever way you turn you find a picture opportunity.

this 13th century tower, which formerly served as a jailhouse, is located on one of the main streets, between the Rodertor gate and the main square. There is a stork's nest on the adjoining Hotel Markusturm. Both make for a great photo.
