Numerous historical and cultural monuments have been preserved in this town: the St. Jacobs Church, the Town Hall, the Protestant Church, a medieval pillory – the Cage of Shame and more than 60 burghers´ houses from the 14th – 15th century, which form the Master Paul´s Square that has retained its medieval shape and belongs to one of the largest of its kind in Europe. The Trade House, the Town Theatre, the Large Provincial House are worth seeing as well.
