On the Marktplatz there are several things to see. One of these is the Nikolai church. If you are in goos shape you can go up and from above you have a very nice view of the city.

The Nikolaikirche was highly recomended in all the guides, but as soon as we went there it wasn't so special... nice to see, but on the way to the historic center.
