There is always something going on in the historic section of town. The streets here have funny names, and square are large. Not only they are full of life, but the architecture will blow your mind; it is mostly Baroque and Rococo and magnificently restored. The pubs and wine bars here are the center of the city’s nightlife. The highlights of this place are its various roads, such as:
- The Schiller statue at Schillerplatz - a nice area to sit and relax.
- Gaustrasse – which is curvy.
- Augustinerstrasse - which is the picturesque main street of Old Town, also called “Stroller’s Mile”.
- Also, the lovely houses.
- The many churches.
- Kirschgarten/The Cherry Orchard – pretty half timbered houses and an enchanting Marian fountain make it superbly romantic.
If you came to the city to shop this is the best place to do it. It’s full of boutiques and specialty stores and souvenir shops.
- Too many to count.
