Groenplaats (Green-place) is worth a visit to have a nice coffee (or beer) and watch the world go by at one of the many cafes. If feeling a little peckish then, at the far corner towards the Cathedral, there's a popular fritter Max. "Belgium fries...More

A not so inspiring city square but does have a statue of Paul Rubens and a better view of the cathedral.

There are trams, some mediocre restaurants and the entrance to the subway and grocery store here. Otherwise, there's no reason to go to this desolate and unappealing square.

I planned this journey for months and after seeing the monstrosity in the form of the KBC Tower, I expected a kind deliverance by having photo opportunities with Ruben's statue at the Groenplaats. Can you imagine my shock and disappointment upon seeing the whole place...More

This is an old market place, in the center of city, with many restaurants and bars, a great place to relax whilst walking/strolling/browsing in the city!

The groenplaats is a central square in town with the main attraction being the view on the cathedral. Cafés and restaurants in the site with missed quality.

The square itself is pretty non descript, however there are various cafes and restaurants around it. It is a premetro stop as well which can be convenient for getting from/to the train station.
