    Baroque and Rococo city. Highlight is the Residenzplatz. Due to its baroque uniformity, it is one of the most beautiful town squares in Dtl. with the 16m high Marian column. On the northern side the prince-bishop residence. In the center of the city is the Cathedral of St. Salvator with the marble urn of St. Willibald, a companion of St. Boniface, who founded in 741 in "Eihstat" a missionary monastery. Nice also the market place with city hall, the former monastery church Notre Dame de Sacré Coeur with the information center Altmühltal. Very well worth seeing are the parks of the summer residence of the prince-bishops, today the administration of the only Catholic university in Dtl. and the Willibaldsburg with the Jura Museum.
