The Domplatz is one of those gems you hope to find in a European city. A classic square with buildings to ponder over on one side, a castle and cathedral opposite and trams setting off hither and thither in every direction (well, three actually).
I loved it when I first saw it and that view didn't diminish during the time I was there. Every time I caught the tram through there I found something new to look at.
Due to the mediaeval nature of the street construction (i.e. seemingly random), coming to the Domplatz is like a breath of fresh air. At least you know you won't get lost for a couple of minutes.
