It's a cute town, but honestly, if you aren't planning to go for a hike (photos below) or staying to study music here in hopes that Mozart's ghost will possess your body and infuse you with talent, you can easily leave here after an afternoon.

|as you leave the city, first you'll pass pasture land|
But if you do end up staying, like I did, then I advise you to go out into the countryside surrounding and into the mountains. Below you'll find photos and views from the countryside.
