personal highlights

  1. Fortress: complexe military defence, imported from Italy to Germany
  2. Museum: learning something about history, but no impressive exhibition
  3. City Gates: were closed one hour after dawn, every day without exception
  4. Schlitzohr (chiseler): thieves were cut into the ear to mark them forever
  5. Bruehl Terrace: great place to enjoy the sunshine on top of the wall
