Hauptmarkt – explore the city’s Hauptmarkt, or “Main Market”, for centuries the scene of a daily market and a tradition that continues to this day. The Hauptmarkt is the traditional city centre and is home to the aptly named 14th-century “Beautiful Fountain.” With its ornate decorations and figures it makes for a picture-perfect spot for a photo or two, and be sure to touch the fountain’s famous gold ring for some good luck.

Frauenkirche – the Church of Our Lady, this Roman Catholic Frauenkirche (Church of Our Lady) dates back to 1352 and is a must-see Gothic landmark.
