While nearly completely destroyed in WWII, the historic German center has been nicely and nearly accurate rebuilt. Definitely worth seeing.

Well worth touring with some lovely architecture and a host of cafes, bars, and shops.The old town is historic and interesting and popular without being completely swamped with tourists. This means you can usually get a seat or admission for anything you want to do.

You can enjoy this part of the town, which is quite nice. Buildings are very beautiful, and the Old Town is full of beautiful cathedrals.

Walking around in the Old Town is like getting back in time a couple of hundred years. Old Town isn't that big so you can easily get around... More
