Lonely Planet review
The historic Marktplatz, framed by the Renaissance Rathaus (town hall; 1573) and accented by an equestrian statue of Jan Wellem .
The art-loving elector lies buried nearby in the early baroque Andreaskirche , which is drenched in fanciful white stucco. Six baroque saint sculptures from the original altar are integrated into the sanctuary. More church art awaits in the treasury in the upstairs gallery. A great time to visit is for the free organ concert at 4.30pm on Sundays.
