More like a real central square than nearby Grote Markt. Moreover no motorized vehicles here, just pedestrians and bicycles (lots of them). The square has a rectangular shape and is rounded by some historic buildings, though many have been added in the 1930s and 1950s....More

The market is the right place to buy some quality products in reasonable prices and a nice open place to walk with friends
