As we waited for the ferry, we experienced the ceramic glockenspiel as it played at 4pm. It was delightful. The Rathaus itself is a prettying building with a square in front, so that you can appreciate its size and beauty.

A lovely town to visit which is noted for its ceramics. Try to be in front of the Rathaus (Town Hall) on the hour. Then you will hear the chimes of the clock on ceramic bells.
