In the center of the square, surrounded by historic buildings, the visitor can find St. Peters fountain. This antique square is now full of cafeterias and restaurants ready to let the visitor enjoy the classic german specialities.

 

St. Peters Cathedral

Built between the S.X and S.XI, this cathedral preserves it original walls.

Although now it is a local government office, it is always nice and relaxing to walk around its beautiful gardens.
