“Very Impressed”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

As with other large cities we have visited - the Main Market Square is as to be expected but non the less impressive. Lots to see and do and plenty of shops and cafes to browse around. Plenty of camera moments as its is a totally beautiful market square area. We very much loved Cloth Hall. Lovely atmosphere to walk through. Advice given to us before we left was to avoid the restaurants on the main square itself and head to streets behind to eat. We did not actually find it overpriced at all on main square. So take a look and make your own mind up what you think is reasonable.

“Romantic”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

I liked it both during the day and during the night, when it is a bit dark, and therefore very romantic.

There are many cute cafes where you can sunbathe and enjoy the view.

Beautiful!
