Characteristic of the medieval townscape is the historic old town with the old market square, which invites you to linger among the beautifully preserved half-timbered houses. Among the numerous architectural treasures in the historic town is the Mainz Gate, first mentioned in 1379 as the outermost boundary point in the west of the town. Since the wall and other towers also surround the old town, no visitor should ignore them. "Stolpersteine" (stumbling stones) have been set in memory of fallen warriors to keep the victims in mind. There is a lot of history behind many of the half-timbered houses and it is best to take part in one of the many guided tours to learn some of the exciting secrets of the town.
