  • It is really nice to be here. To be relax, to have a hike with your family and friends, and most of all, to have chance to enjoy the great nature here. There is water, mountain, trees, hiking trails. Amazing views here. I have taken plenty pictures here. Enjoy.
  • Its a bit touristic and you probably need to buy chocolate at pretty much grocery store prices, but it's a nice place to walk around and shop. Get ice cream if you have the time and lines are short enough. They definitely do things right in the old factory area.
