If you really want to relax, sit there for a couple of hours at sun rise or sun set. Try to avoid times of holidays so it is not crowded if you can.

A good place to be at the sunset. You can enjoy the view at the seaside with glass of fresh juice. Admission is free. To reach there you need to rent a ride

It is amazing to set on the lake and see the sunset on the lake. Also you can enjoy the spring of Fatnis.

the view is amazing! it's very soothing and better during the sunset. there is a cafe there if you want something to drink. and it's not that far from the city center so going there is not expensive.
