The area of the old town to the east of the Market Square is called Zurich. Narrow streets and small houses recreate the atmosphere of the medieval European town. These neighborhoods could once be found in all German cities. But it was not always possible to maintain or recreate them in our days. Schweinfurt visitors can feel themselves as burghers who lived here in the Middle Ages. The name Zurich, contrary to stereotypes, has no relation to the famous Swiss town. Translated from old German it means that once stock was bred there. Later the area was annexed by the old town. Now the small quarter with the main street, Krumme Gasse (translated as "crooked alley") is a popular tourist route.
