Gutenbergplatz is a pretty 19th century square in the Weststadt quarter. The adjacent pubs put their chairs and tables out in summer underneath the linden trees. Here is where the locals meet. If you want to get away from the city centre's noise and hassle, you'll find a refuge here.

Café Carré: Prettiest location in the Northeastern corner behind the fountain with afternoon and evening sun. Good beer (Alpirsbacher, from the Black Forest). Food average, wide choice of Italian and international. Premiere TV bar, so if you HAVE to watch Bundesliga or some other sports event, go inside.

Carpe Diem: in the shady Northwestern corner. Small choice of food but not bad. Good local beer (Wolf).

Gutenberg: further down the square next to the parking lot, so less pretty to sit, but they also have a cosy beer garden in their inner courtyard. German/Bavarian food.

Dress Code: None. Clothes required, though;-)
