A great place to walk to on a friday summer evening. The square is lively with street musicians, plenty of cafes, loads of shops (a bit pricey) and lots of people. Nice atmosphere.

You can see everything from here. The castle/palace, the restaurants, street actors and concerts. You name it, it happens here and all right in the middle of the city. Only thing missing is a changing of the guard. Don't miss the museums nearby.
