Lonely Planet review

Thanks to its congenial mix of cafes, galleries, boutiques and entertainment venues, this attractively restored complex of eight interlinked courtyards is very popular with the tourist brigade. Court I , prettily festooned with patterned Art Nouveau tiles, is the liveliest, while Court VII leads off to the romantic Rosenhöfe , a single courtyard with a sunken rose garden and tendril-like balustrades.
