Coming out of the railway station the first building to catch the eye is the wonderful simple but massive spire of the Petrikirche. Strangely, it’s only been there since 1981. The original one collapsed in 1752, and was only replaced when the church was rebuilt...More

Nice architecture, but nothing caught my eye. For me the church is just typical of the city's style.
