One of the nicest market places I've been to. In summer with the cafes and terraces and in winter time with the little Christmas stalls.

Great location to admire the magnificient city hall with all the flags and people watch. The restaurants and cafe around are a nice place to sit and enjoy the place. Normally in the weekends you will see some wedding ceremony going on.

The architecture of this square is stunning, from statues to city hall and former guild halls. There are numerous restaurants and cafes to sit outside at and enjoy the views of this historic square. Make sure to get a little history/mythology lesson behind the city's name and how it relates to the famous statue in this square.

When visiting the historic center of Antwerp, don't miss out on the Grote Markt. Many beautiful 16th century houses, the town hall and of course the many terraces make it a place to linger.

just to stand in the square and admire the architecture dominated by the stunning town hall but with lots of other beautiful buildings around it. Plenty of cafés around the edge. The square is often used for cultural events. Worth a visit if you like lovely 16th/17th century architecture
