With many interconnecting streets where shoppers can browse and shop, you can get caught up in the vibrant atmosphere simply by strolling along the Schildergasse.

Foodies definitely should not miss a tour to the Chocolate Museum, where you learn about the history of chocolate and its making process.
To truly appreciate the German culture, you have to visit a traditional beer hall, where locals gather for tasty German dishes and endless round of delicious beer. Try the roasted pork knuckle, a beloved German dish, usually served with sauerkraut and potato salad. If you are craving more, then why not sample some sausages, especially the curry wurst, a unique sausage dish only to be found in Germany.
