This is one of the nicest market squares with quite some monuments surrounding it. On Saturdays and Mondays a market is held on the square.

It is a nice town square with some restaurants on it. But the view of the Grote Kerk was partially obstructed by other buildings that must have been built after the church.

We visited on Saturday, enjoyed shopping at the Saturday market. Great waffles, cheese, and cherries. We also explored the center/shopping area. Nice and small nothing impressive. Visit only if you are in area

Very extensive shops (clothes and shoes especially). Had coffee and pastry at a cafe looking out at the open market area, including a beautiful church.
