Reichenstrasse leads west from the tower, past some fancy baroque houses to the Hauptmarkt, site of the tourist office and thrice-weekly farmers' markets. The square is dominated by the impressive Rathaus, with an 18th-century baroque exterior that masks a Gothic origin. The intriguing sundial not only measures time, but also the lengths of the days and nights for the respective date.
