“Beautiful square”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013 via mobile

This square is so picturesque. The cathedral is surrounded by so many beautiful buildings that house many different restaurants and shops. Enjoy the walk and when you see the old art you will recognize many of the buildings.

“Wonderful place to pause for a break”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

With the great church in the background, this is a wonderful spot to stop and have a snack, rest the feet and enjoy people watching.

“A great space with stalls selling a wonderful selection of food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

We visited the market on Saturday morning and it may not be so good on other days. For us it was great. Stalls selling a wide selection of very good quality food. A really old fashioned feel enhanced the historic setting.

“Cozy square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

It is a cozy square and it is the middle of the shoppingstreets. On the square are a lot of hangouts in different kinds. You can eat, drink and go out a night. There is also a museum (teylers museum) and a beautiful cathedral.

“for the market or terrace”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

On Saturday there is a big market here with lots of fresh food. When there is no market, and the weather is nice there will be lots of terraces set up to enjoy a drink or some food. Very nice!
