OK, so you pay a bit more for sitting and having a meal or drink on this lovely square, but you can watch the world go by, enjoying the sights of the beautiful Belfry and other buildings.

Nice place in the city center to soak up some interesting medieval architecture. You can just stroll through the Markt or have lunch in one of the restaurants in the vicinity. Watch out for the bikes, some go pretty fast.

Very impressing place with beautiful buildings around. We did not sit in one of the expensive restaurants but just on one of the benches.

This is a great place to sit and have a coffee, admire the buildings, arrange to meet up and people watch

All the houses are in perfect condition. Amazing flair of the place right at the Bellfry. Plenty of restaurants available.
