Nothing special and no impressive scenery. The larger surrounding areas where very industrial with lots of building work taking place. The actual town had some pretty areas but was mainly just a boring town with shops. Nothing magical, nothing cultural or exciting.

Drop by here for a short walk even if you do not have the time. It will not take you long and it is a lovely experience.

Such a beautiful old city! White little wooden houses... This is a must, just to walk around slowly wondering and watching all these cute little shops etc. Absolutely worth visiting, relaxing...
