What a stunning town!!! Picture perfect and enjoyed immensely from the height of the walls. There's even a cafe in the middle for a quick pit stop and a game of mini golf if your fancy strikes ;)

Walking the tower gives you an idea of what it was like to protect the town from intruders. The walk is well maintained and most people who can climb a set of stairs can do this. You also get an overview of the town.

The city is one of the old walled ones on the romantic route. The walk is easy and can be attempted by most people with some level of fitness. Beautiful views from the wall. Well worth the walk.

This is the one tower one is able to access to the top. A small museum is contained inside with panoramas of the historic siege of the city in the 1600's, an old brass spire, helmets, and more.
