Altstadt is a really beautiful town for shopping, eating, and sightseeing around the River Rhine. There are many restaurants and bars situated in the heart of Altstadt.

Lovely place to stroll around on a nice day. Lovely people and some quirky shops as well as the more well known ones. Superb down by the river.

Lots of bars, cafes and restaurants with a nice little town square. Right near the river and a walkabout on a summer’s evening is very enjoyable

The Old Town offers exactly what you’d expect to find: historical buildings with pretty architecture, plenty of restaurants and bars where you can enjoy a good meal and some drinks. Every street is unique in its own way. There are also some really nice shops...More

The city is best discovered in the center. Walk though the pedestrian streets and stop for 1, 2 and then 3 beers!
