Cross the ”von-Vincke-Straße” and, after about 20 meters, turn left on the "Promenade", an alley reserved for pedestrians and cyclists. Walk along the promenade for about 5 minutes and turn right into a narrow street, ”Hals”. This gets you strait into the ”Krumme Gasse”. Make a left turn into the ”Grüne Gasse”.
