This is near the Burgplatz where you will also find many of the other top attractions on Trip Advisor, along with shopping, food, and drink. Stop by Reilly's Pub for a Guiness Pint or the Schweine Janes for a pork sandwich while you are there...More

Central square bordering the Rhine. Good access to local bars, restaurants and clubs. Ferris wheel lit up at night. Costs €7.50 for five rotations - pods which can seat 8 enjoy great views.

Part of the old castle, the beautiful plaza still has the old tower which now houses a museum. The square is now a busy public space bustling with restaurants, cafes and bars and is a great way to spend a lazy afternoon.

People mix this Burgplatz with Marktplatz which is closed square with Rathaus and horse statue. Burgplatz like name tells...More
