  Siegfried & the Alte Münze
by globetrott

When you walk on towards the Altpörtel you will get to a lovely fountain with Siegfried on top, who has killed the dragon already.
The building in the back used to be the place, where the coins were made untill 1748, when it burned down. Then it became a warehouse and the seat of some public offices, but the lovely building itself is still called "Alte Münze" today.
Click on my picture and see the great ornaments around the clock on top of the building !

Around this fountain you will see a lot of great garden-cafes with a perfect view on the townhall, the Alte Münze and the cathedral !
