Found this street when looking for the tourist info centre which is located here. That in itself is very good as are the shops and historic building here too. Only a small area but good to enjoy a beer in the pub here too

The majority of interesting things to see in this picturesque little street off the main square is above eye-level. After having eaten, we wandered down here just in time to see the glockenspiel at midday - very pretty and well-timed. Apart from that there's not...More

What sets Böttcherstraße apart from many other streets of old buildings is the many courtyards off the main thoroughfare with interesting features and artworks. Well worth taking the time for a walk, perhaps on way to or from the river.
