“The facades of the buildings were so archaic, unique and unlike anything that I had experienced”

Walking slowly through an old narrow laneway in the Altstadt, I paused in astonishment. The facades of the buildings were so archaic, unique and unlike anything that I had experienced. “. The street was almost hidden, barely noticeable connecting the arcades to the Old Marketplace, renown for its goldsmiths that long ago peddled their antique craft in the many shops that line the roadway. Beautifully designed and decorated medieval and baroque facades adorned with religious ornaments and intricately designed cast iron signs of artisans selling their wares were everywhere to be seen. Bouquets of neatly arranged colourful flowers lined the elegant buildings in this romantic picturesque thoroughfare, manifesting an atmosphere that was at once archaic yet romantic to behold.
