Being in front of the HBF does not do justice to this grand statue, but is worth the effort in taking a moment to admire it.

Majestically positioned outside the train station. Opposite is the Tourist Office, where you can purchase tickets for the City Sightseeing Bus, a good way for getting your bearings of the city. Only circa 3 per day and takes just under 2 hours, but worth it...More
