The Brink is the beating heart of central Deventer! Many pubs and restaurants, interesting shops and The Waag as monumental historic building. By day a big market on Friday and Saturday. Go there!

This is a really nice square with lots of lovely buildings mixed in with bars and restaurants. There was also a small market on the day we visited. This appears to be the place to hang out in Deventer.

It's a huge square with restaurants and pedestrian shopping streets leading away. There's a market (I think on Fridays).

We decided to go to Deventer from Amsterdam to see another part of the country. It was a pleasant train ride, and we enjoyed seeing the downtown and having a nice lunch. It is older than Amsterdam, and has a lovely compact downtown area.

De Brink, surrounded by majestic old houses, is the largest central square in the Neths. Each week(end) filled with one or another event/activity. Music, movie, market, street theater, etc. Never a dul moment.
