  • It is not shockingly extraordinary. Such as an ordinary OLD well from the 16th century. Hmmm, such beautiful, ordinary things were once created. I liked it.

  • A highly ornamented Renaissance fountain built in 16th century. It sits at one corner of the lovely market plaza to form a charming historical attraction. Believe it or not, the plaza and most of its surrounding buildings were rebuilt after heavy bombing in WWII. The fountain however was the original one built in renaissance era because it was placed somewhere else and was intact during the war. It was later relocated to the market plaza.
  • Beautiful town, just 30 mins away from Frankfurt by train. The town area is walkable from Hbf within 10-15 mins.
