    Beautiful half-timbered town with a lot of charm. It is also worth a detour, in the small winding side streets.

    Beautiful old town with many half-timbered houses. The way through the side streets is also worthwhile.

    One of the most beautiful small towns in Hesse with a fantastically beautiful, relatively large old town with many half-timbered houses. Restaurant tip for a fancy dinner: Höerhof!
