    Worth seeing medieval old town center around the market square and the historic town hall. Listed ensemble. In the inn Löwen is the alchemist and magician Dr. med. Faust died, according to Zimmer's chronicle, because one of the supreme devils, Mephistophiles, broke his neck here. The corresponding quote from the chronicle can be read on the facade of the lion. Today it is believed that Burgherr Anton von Staufen had hired him as a goldmaker and he died in a chemical explosion.

    Drilling that was carried out for the purpose of the new heating system for the town hall brought a reaction in the ground with it. Since that time (2013) the earth is moving and causes corresponding cracks in the houses. Therefore, z. T. banners attached to which it should be noted that Staufen should not tear.

    Worthwhile is also the passage right past the town hall. Immediately the first street on the right leads to the non-touristic old town.
