Its all there in the Burgplatz and Rhein promenade. You have lots of options here and history added to it. Located near the Rhein River and in "Altstadt" you can spend time with a leisure walk along the Rhein and enjoy the historic sites.

This is a beautiful tower right on the Burgplatz. A lot of pictures are taken with this tower on it. There is now a little museum in it. The first three floors are from the 13th century!
