Building that was stone and half timber with balconies surrounding a good size cobblestone courtyard. The boxes of flowers on edge of the balconies were pretty, but otherwise this place was a bit plain.

The old courtyard at the old residence is nice enough but nothing special. I wouldn't make a special detour, but if you are seeing the Dom (good) or the Neue Residenz (don't bother!) you should poke your nose in.

Very similar to what you find in the other old villages, but still nice to look at, if you are there.

A very attractive series of old buildings clustered around a large courtyard near the top of the old town. The timber-work and decoration is worth some study.

Well I'd like to advise you but sadly we arrived here a day before it was due to reopen.All I can say is it looks most interesting, it's close to the cathedral so maybe you will get luckier than us.
