The lanes north of Münster square are a bit off the beaten path and rather quiet. Apart from a few shops and pubs this is a residential area. Few visitors venture here, but it is worth a closer look. This quarter is almost entirely preserved in its pre-war architecture. Most houses have medieval origins.

Niederburg used to be possession of the bishop. The settlement developed around the cathedral hill in the early middle ages. Its inhabitants were the servants and workers of the cathedral, the bishop?s court and the canons? houses.
